ADVANCE CARE PLANNING DOCUMENTS
These links to advance directive forms will help you document your health-care wishes and are used if you are unable to communicate for yourself.
The most common directives include:

Advance Directive for Surgical/Medical Treatment (also known as a Living Will): This directive is used only when a physician (or physicians) has determined that the patient has a terminal condition or is in a permanent vegetative state. The directive documents your wishes related to life-sustaining procedures and artificial nutrition.
**CPR Directive: This documents refusal of CPR in the event your heart or breathing malfunctions or stops.
