Communicate What Matters Most
Communicate what matters most regarding medical care based on your care goals, faith and values through this simple Advance Directive process. We have found that most of our patients do not have an Advance Directive; according to research, only 20-30% of Americans have one. Most are overwhelmed by the medico-legal jargon. It’s important to think about how you want to be cared for if you become unable to communicate your wishes due to illness or injury. Here is a simple way to communicate those wishes to your loved ones and health-care providers.
Stanford Medicine has given us permission to use their Advance Directive simple form. Click on the link below. It’s easy. Advance Directives help loved ones honor your wishes and can protect your rights. Print it out, make a copy and bring it to your next Mammoth Hospital appointment. We will scan it into your electronic medical record.
