Medical Ethics Consultations

How is an ethical concern addressed at St. Mary's?

If you have an ethical concern, please contact a chaplain 24/7 at 812.429.4065 (wait to key in your phone number) or the Pastoral Care office at 812.485.4150, M-F, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. A chaplain will contact you.

Once the ethical concern is expressed, a Chaplain Facilitator will work closely with the "Community of Concern." The Community of Concern includes, but is not limited to:

  • Patients
  • Families
  • Significant others
  • Medical staff
  • Nursing staff
  • Healthcare advocates
  • Interdisciplinary teams
  • Chaplains
  • Social services
  • Clergy

A Medical Ethics Consultation occurs when any member of the Community of Concern questions whether an ethical dilemma exists in the care of a patient.
