Advance Directives

St. John’s respects the right of each patient to make voluntary informed choices concerning their medical care and advance directives. An advance directive can include a health care proxy, living will, Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST), or Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) Order.

An advance directive is an effective way of maintaining control over your medical care if you become unable to make decisions. We encourage you to discuss issues concerning your medical care with your family, friends, physicians and other health care providers.
