Medical ethics has an applicative character that manifests itself in the development and recommendation of scientific solutions for the optimal resolution of moral issues. Ethical morality is a type of social consciousness that reflects and establishes principles, norms, rules, and behavioural requirements regarding the patient-nurse relationship and the nurse-community relationship (society, family). The nurse’s moral and ethical standards are not enforced by law, but they do constitute conduct requirements. The medical act is performedby observing some deontological parameters, the most important of which are professional competence, conscientiousness toward the medical act, and professional prudence.
