What questions do you ask the patient when they are being admitted concerning religious, ethical and culture needs? Our hospital chaplain is trying to get our assessment questions in this area changed, but what he wants seems to be mainly focused on religious needs.

We always ask if there is a religious affiiliation. If there is a religious consideration that would affect their care during their stay and if they would like/mind a visit from either the hospital chaplin or their own religious leader.
