    I regularly run into people who are scared and/or unwilling to receive chaplain support because they fear they will be "prayed over" or be preached at.

    If I was hospitalized and a chaplain came into my room, I'd be screaming "GET OUT!  GET OUT!  GET OUT!" at the top of my lungs and throwing every loose object I could reach.  If I'm sick enough to be in a hospital, the LAST thing I need is a few hours of being browbeaten into joining some religion.
