Frequently Asked Questions:

Advance Directives are documents written in advance of an incapacitating illness to provide guidance for families and caregivers. These documents usually will name an agent to make decisions when a patient is unable to do so. The documents may also state a patient's choice about treatment.

NorthBay Healthcare recommends the Advance Health Care Directive since it allows for an agent to be appointed. Click here to download a PDF Advance Health Care Directive Form (English/Spanish).
 

Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) is a form that gives seriously-ill patients more control over their end-of-life care, including medical treatment, extraordinary measures (such as a ventilator or feeding tube) and CPR. POLST can prevent unwanted or ineffective treatments, reduce patient and family suffering, and ensure that a patient's wishes are honored.

You can download POLST forms here.

A POLST form is a medical order that tells emergency health care professionals what to do in case of a medical crisis where the patient cannot speak for him/herself. An advance directive is a legal document that tells who the patient wants making medical treatment decisions for him/her when he/she cannot speak and, generally, what treatments the patient does or does not want.

Both documents provide difference pieces of information, but you may not need a POLST form until you become seriously ill, frail, or are close to the end of your life.

Learn more about the differences and how these two forms compliment each other on the official POLST website.
