Six Step Ethical Framework

At Shannex, we value residents as individuals and respect their personal life choices so they can live their best life. When someone moves in, we meet to collaborate, discuss and document their care preferences. There are times that these choices places us in situations that call for thoughtful consideration about the way we provide care, or how we feel we should provide care.

In cases where conflicting opinions exist, Shannex uses an ethical framework to work through these situations as they arise.

The Six-Step Process

We encourage everyone to use this framework if you find yourself facing a difficult decision or issue. Whether you’re a resident, family member, employee or a volunteer, everyone can benefit from following this six-step process.
