Daytona Beach Lawyers - What to do with an Advance Directive

What should I do with my advance directive if I choose to have one?

Make sure that someone such as your doctor, lawyer or family member knows that you have an advance directive and where it is located.  Consider the following:

  • If you have designated a healthcare surrogate, give a copy or the original of the written designation form to the person.
  • Give a copy of the advance directive to your doctor for your medical file.
  • Keep a copy of your advance directive in a place where it can be found easily.
  • Keep a card or note in your purse or wallet which states that you have an advance directive and where it is located.
  • If you change your advance directive, make sure that our doctor, lawyer and/or family member has the latest copy.

 

Feel free to contact one of our Daytona Beach lawyers if you have any more questions.
