There may be times when you and your family will be faced with difficult
treatment choices. Our Ethics Committee is available as a resource for
information and advice and participates in the ethical policy making process
at St. Mary's Hospital. The Ethics Committee guides, educates and
assists members of the hospital, family, patients, and caregivers as they
confront difficult or in many cases, painful decisions. The members of
the committee can be consulted when families or caregivers feel the need
for clarification of ethical issues.
A request to meet with the Ethics Committee can be made through your physician
or healthcare providers. If you have any ethical concerns, please contact
the Social Work Department at 973-365-4385.
