Advance Directive

Creating an advance directive can ensure your healthcare is proceeding in your best interest at all times.

Preparing For an Emergency

An advance directive is a written statement from a person stating how they want their medical decisions made in case they are ever unable to physically or mentally decide on their own. Advance directives can reduce some of the stress that would be placed on the family in a time of medical emergency for the patient. Advance directive options include healthcare power of attorney, a living will, or a do-not-resuscitate order (DNR). PCHFMC encourages you to discuss advanced directives with your family and medical staff.
