Advance Directives

The WHC highly recommends creating “Advance Directives,” or written instructions regarding medical care preferences. Medical providers will consult advance directives once the patient is unable to make his or her own health care decisions. These directives can include a Living Will, designation of a medical POA (Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care) and a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate Order).  Advance Directives are not only good for elderly, but for all ages in case of a medical emergency. 

Durable Power of Attorney
For Health Care

  Living Will

You choose someone you trust to make health care decisions if you ever become unable.

  Spells out, in writing, under what circumstances you want    medical care withdrawn or withheld

You may include guidelines and limitations you wish your agent to follow as well as circumstances you want medical care withheld or withdrawn.

  You spell out in writing under what circumstances you         want medical care withheld or withdrawn.

It includes all health care decisions, including requesting or refusing treatment or care.

  It refers only to withholding or withdrawing care.

It applies to any kind of illness or injury that incapacitates you and leaves you unable to speak for yourself.

  It applies only when your physician determines that you     are in a terminal condition and are unable to speak for       yourself.

It can be flexible to changing circumstances.

  It is static and may not cover every possible medical         situation.

It is easily revoked, orally or in writing.

  Same.

It must be signed and witnessed by two qualified witnesses neither of whom can be the agent or employed by the health care facility. One must be unrelated to the person and not a beneficiary or heir of the estate.

  It must be signed and witnessed by two unrelated             persons.

It does not recognize another state's Durable Power (Proxy).

  It recognizes declarations legally valid in other states.

 

A DNR, is a medical order written by a doctor. It instructs health care providers not to do CPR or defibrillation if your heart stops or intubation if breathing stops.  At the WHC, a DNR order allows you to choose, before an emergency occurs, whether you want CPR, defibrillation, and intubation. It does not affect other treatments, such as pain medicine, medicines, or nutrition. 

If you would like to start the process of any of these three things, contact Wishek Hospital and Clinic at (701) 452-2326.
