    Love all the podcasts…thank you.
    In our local hospital (and probably many other hospitals) patients in isolation (including those with reduced resistance in protective isolation) can not receive Eucharist because hospital pastoral care staff or Eucharistic ministers or other clergy are not permitted to enter room by hospital policy. With the increased need for protective isolation because of annual flu viruses, MRSA, Norwalk virus etc, I’m sure this is a common situation. What do you suggest as a solution?
