Resumo: There has been increasing interest in the use of nursing home policies and guidelines to improve decisions about the elective use of life-sustaining treatments. Such policies should be based on a sound and complete understanding of the legal and ethical governance responsibilities of health care facilities. Policies should address both the process of decision making and treatment plan implementation. Nursing home administrators should commission policies and monitor their implementation.
