Advanced Directive Statement
An “Advance Directive” is a general term that refers to your oral and/or written instructions about your future medical care, in the event that you become unable to speak for yourself.
Each state regulates the use of advance directives differently. There are two types of advance directives: a living will and a medical power of attorney. If you would like a copy of the Official AZ State advance directive forms, please visit http://www.azsos.gov/adv_dir/.
If you have a Living Will or Medical Power of Attorney, we encourage you to provide us with a copy to be placed in your chart. This will only be used in the unlikely event that you are unable to make your own decisions.
