The paper discusses hospital and health policies with regard to the implementation of new directives. The paper outlines the areas to which these new directives relate and suggests that the best way to have the nursing staff support decisions about the use or non-introduction of medical innovations is to implicate them in the decisions for use or non-use. The paper concludes that by giving everyone a voice in putting together procedures, the hospital and the patient will benefit.
