Advanced Directives

Advance Directives are a patient's legal documents for their medical preferences in the event the patient should become incapable of voicing his/her opinions.

They are used to tell the doctors and family what kind of medical treatment the patient wants if they are too sick or hurt to talk or make decisions.

Patients have the right to decide about their own medical care, and these documents are very important in protecting their medical wishes. If you currently do not have one, certain members of your family will have to decide on your care.
