Please complete these forms and bring them with you to your appointment. These forms are required for all appointments within LRH’s Medical Office Building.
An advance directive and living will tell your doctor what kind of care you would like to have if you become unable to make medical decisions. If you are admitted to the hospital, the hospital staff will probably talk to you about advance directives.
A good advance directive describes the treatment you would want depending on how sick you are. For example, the directives would describe what kind of care you want if you have an illness that you are unlikely to recover from, or if you are permanently unconscious. Advance directives usually tell your doctor that you don’t want certain kinds of treatment. However, they can also say that you wish to receive specific treatment no matter how ill you are.
