All issues of health care have an ethical component. In a hospital setting, ethics addresses moral questions and dilemmas faced by the patient, family, and caregivers within the healthcare system.

At WHGH, the Board of Governors has adopted a policy and supporting documents that provide guidance to Hospital and Professional staff, Volunteers, learners,
patients and their families regarding how to identify, manage and resolve ethical issues that may arise in the course of operations of the Hospital.
