Advance directive

An advance directive, also known as living will, personal directive, medical directive or advance decision, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity.

If you have an advance directive, bring a copy with you to the hospital. For patients with a legal guardian, conservator or power of attorney, a copy should be brought to the hospital and presented at admission.
