Ohio Advance Directives
Everyone wishing to make decisions about his/her own medical treatment should communicate their desires with legal documents known as advance directives.
One type of advance directive, a living will, indicates a patient’s wishes regarding end-of-life services, such as the use of feed tubes or breathing machines. Another directive known as a health proxy names a power of attorney you trust to make health decisions when you can’t. Do Nor Resuscitate directives and options are also common.
