Advance Directives

One way to exercise your rights as a patient is to prepare an Advance Directive. If you are 18 or older and mentally competent, you have the right to make decisions about your medical treatment. If you want to control decisions about your health care, even if you become unable to express them yourself, you will need an advance directive. An Advance Directive is a form you sign now to direct your future health care if you cannot speak for yourself in the future.
