Do you have Advance Directives on file with your physician and/or the hospital? We want to be sure that we know your wishes if the need arises.
Advance directives are documents that state your choices about medical treatment or name someone to make decisions about your medical treatment, if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. They are called “advance” directives because they are signed in advance to let your doctor and other health care providers know your wishes concerning medical care.
One of the best ways to ensure your end-of-life wishes are honored, is to have complete and up-to-date advance directives. Visit IdahoLivingandDyingWell.org to download advance directive forms and view resources.
