Clinical Ethics Consultation

MetroHealth’s Clinical Ethics Committee is available to assist patients, family members, friends and health care professionals regarding health care issues of an ethical nature. 

To request a clinical ethics consult, call 216-778-8497 or page 216-207-1095.

Examples may include:

  • Understanding patient/family wishes and values.
  • Resolving conflicts regarding difficult treatment decisions or goals of care.
  • Decisions at or about the end of life, such as advance directives.

The Clinical Ethics Consultation Service is made up of a small team of members from the MetroHealth Clinical Ethics Committee, which includes ethicists, physicians, nurses, clergy, social workers, legal counsel and community members.

Any family member or health care professional may request a clinical ethics consult on behalf of a patient.
