Caregiving Ethics in Long Term Care
Presentation Featuring: Stacey Meyer, Senior Corporate Counsel
Long-term care settings present ethical challenges for surrogate decision-makers and the communities where their loved ones reside, creating difficult and emotional situations, especially without documentation or a clear understanding of authority.
Healthcare providers often deal with the family’s confusion and varying opinions. Plus, associates develop personal relationships with long-term residents, which create potential ethical problems.
