Who Will Make Your Medical Decisions if You Can't?
Why Advance Directives Are Important
Advance health care directives (also called advance directives) are a way for you to give consent for certain situations where you might want -- or not want -- treatment. They can also be used to appoint someone to make decisions for you if you can’t do so yourself. An advance directive gives you a better chance of having your wishes carried out, even if you can’t talk to the doctors about what you want.
Adults have the right to control their medical treatment as long as they are mentally able to do so. You can choose which course of treatment you would like from those the doctor offers. You can choose the kind of treatment (aggressive, comfort care, or even none). This right is called informed consent and every state recognizes it.
Informed consent means that the doctor or nurse explains the purpose, benefits, risks, and alternatives of the treatment before you decide whether to get it. In most cases, treatment can be given only if you agree to it. Still, this right is not absolute. For example, if you need immediate or emergency care, the doctor may go ahead with treatment even if you can’t take in information and agree (consent) to be treated.
