On April 13th UH St John Medical Center invites you to participate in National Healthcare Decision Day. This event is to raise awareness of the importance of completing Advance Directives. Advance Directives name the person that would make your healthcare decisions if you were too sick to speak for yourself. They are your voice!!
Advantages of having Advance Directives are: Security in knowing your wishes are recorded, comfort to loved ones who are being asked “what to do next” because you have written instructions, and certainty that your wishes are being followed because these are legally binding.
Stop by the Main or ER lobby on April 13th to pick up a copy of Ohio’s Advance Directives and ask any question you may have about getting these documents completed and made a part of your medical record. Tables will be in the lobbies from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm.
