Ethics

Doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason.

Sometimes an individual’s beliefs and values conflict with the medical or organizational decisions that are made. When such conflicts happen, the Allegiance Health Ethics Committee is available to help you understand and communicate about the decisions that are causing concern. All conversations are held in strict confidence.

Contacting the Ethics Committee

You can request contact with a member of the Ethics Committee by calling (517) 788-4743, or you can have the hospital operator page the “Ethics On Call” number. A committee member will return your call within a short amount of time.

Time is critical during a heart attack. The longer it takes to get treated, the more badly damaged the heart will be. Get to the hospital quickly by calling 9-1-1. Do not attempt to drive yourself.
