    Throughout its history, nursing has relied on ethical principles to serve as guidelines in determining patient care (Kelly & Tazbir, 2014, p. 395). Health care leaders have the responsibility to create an ethically principled environment that upholds the professional standards. According to Kelly and Tazbir (2014), “Ethics is the branch of philosophy that concerns the distinction of right from wrong, based on a body of knowledge, not just based on opinions” (p. 395).
