Advanced Directives


Advance Directives are documents, such as a Living Will or a Durable Medical Power of Attorney, that allow you to name the person you would like to make health care decisions for you if you are unable, and the kind of care you would like if you become terminally ill or are dying.


These documents tell us what you want us to do about your end-of-life care if you are unable to tell us your wishes at a later date. Click here for more information about Advance Directives. You may ask about Advance Directives when you are admitted to the hospital, or at any time while you are in the hospital. You have the right to have your Advance Directives included in your medical record, and to have hospital staff and physicians follow your wishes.


If you have an Advance Directive we encourage you to provide a copy to your nurse and discuss you wishes with your physician in addition to making a copy available for your record.
