A Care Ethics Position: Doctor-Patient Relationships

Consider the question of doctor-patient relationships ethics.

Imagine that you are a doctor and have become very close to a patient in your hospital who is recovering from a serious illness, under your care, and is facing the prospect of long-term care rather than going home. The family members don’t get along with each other, so they rarely visit without starting a quarrel over who will get the house. Considering this situation from a care ethics position, should you become involved in this discussion? If so, what would you say? If not, why not?
