Advance Directive

If you are an adult, (18 years of age or older), you have the right to make an Advance Directive. An Advance Directive may be either a living Will or a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare.

  • Living Will:  A Living Will is a document through which you make your wishes known about your medical treatment should the time come that you are no longer able to express yourself. If you do not have a Living Will and are interested in receiving more information, or are interested in actually making one, please tell your nurse. The nurse will contact someone who can provide the necessary forms and answer your questions.

When you are admitted, we will ask if you have a Living Will.  Federal law requires that we ask you this. If you have a Living Will, bring it with you.  We will make a copy for your chart and will return the original to you. You should bring this document each time you are admitted to a hospital. Keep your Living Will in a safe place at home where you and your family can find it.

  • Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare:  A Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare is a document in which you legally name a person who will speak for you or make healthcare decisions on your behalf at the time you are unable to make such decisions for yourself.

The care you receive at Washington Regional is not dependent upon whether you have either of these documents. An Advance Directive form is available by clicking here.
