Ethics Committee

Supporting Informed Decisions

UMC has established an Ethics Committee for the purpose of resolving conflicts in the areas of life-supporting, life-sustaining and life-enhancing care.

Sometimes, ethical dilemmas arise, such as “are we doing the right thing for our family member?” or “who should be making these decisions?”

A committee meeting could help you work through your family’s questions, and help you make informed choices. If you find yourself needing guidance, please contact us.

You may request a committee meeting by contacting the Medical Staff Department  at 702-383-2603, or the On-Duty Administrator at 702-383-2000 after normal business hours.
