During your admission process, you will be asked if you have an advance directive (living will and/or durable power of attorney for healthcare), and if not, whether you would like information on how to complete one. Advance directives are your written instructions for the medical treatment you want in the event that you are unable to communicate your wishes. Bring advance directives copies with you for your medical record.
If you currently have a do not resuscitate (DNR) or “No CPR” advance directive in place, please notify us immediately. You will have the opportunity to discuss this with your physicians and staff prior to your scheduled procedure.
If you have questions or concerns, contact Pre-Surgery Testing at (740) 689-6314.
