Advanced Directive (Click to Download)
An advance directive tells your doctor what kind of care you would like to have if you become unable to make medical decisions (if you are in a coma, for example). If you are admitted to Grays Harbor Community Hospital, our staff will talk to you about advance directives. The directives would describe what kind of care you want if you have an illness that you are unlikely to recover from, or if you are permanently unconscious. Advance directives tell your doctor that you don't want certain kinds of treatment.
