Advance directives are written or verbal instructions made by you before an incapacitating illness or injury. It communicates your wishes about treatment to be followed if you are too sick or unable to make decisions about your care. Examples of advance directives are a healthcare proxy, a do not resuscitate (DNR) order and a living will. You do not need a lawyer to complete Advance Directives.
At Brookhaven, there will be no discrimination in regard to the provision of care based on whether or not you have executed an advance directive. At the time of admission, you or your designated healthcare proxy will be given written information concerning your rights to formulate an advance directive, and you will also be informed regarding the availability of an informational video, "Who Will Speak For You?" At this time, you will be asked to sign a form, which indicates whether or not you have previously executed an advance directive. If you have any questions or concerns, please consult your nurse.
