A Healthcare Directive gives your health care providers and/or your designated health care agent(s) the guidance to make health care decisions according to your wishes. It only applies when you cannot make decisions or communicate your wishes. The document may include what treatment you may want or may not want under specific circumstances.
Social Services at Lakewood Health System can assist you in filling out a healthcare directive and assuring your healthcare provider has this information in your medical records.
