Community Health Care Directive Workshop
Apr 16, 2013
12:00 pm until 3:00 pm
It’s time to make your personal medical wishes known!
If you were in an accident or suffered a medical emergency tomorrow that left you temporarily or permanently incapacitated, who would make medical decisions for you and advocate for your care?
With today’s strict HIPAA laws, it may not be who you think!
Every adult needs a health care directive in place to legally name the person they trust to make decisions for them and spell out their health care wishes in an emergency.
Does my family know my personal wishes about things such as life support, feeding tubes, organ donation or nursing home care?
Have I legally documented my wishes so there’s never any questions, family feuds or court battles over what “I would have wanted” in a health care crisis? (The Terry Shiavo Case is a great example of this! Emotions run high in a medical crisis and you want your wishes IN WRITING to avoid disputes!)
Does the person I want to oversee my medical affairs have documentation of my wishes so that doctors or hospitals will never refuse to speak to them because of HIPAA laws?
Is the person I’ve chosen truly up for the job? Do they live close enough to help in an emergency? Do they stress out and become overwhelmed easily? What if I need a lifetime of care? Will they be around for the long-haul?
If you answered NO to any of these questions, you need a healthcare directive to protect yourself and your loved ones in the event of an emergency.
