Daytona Beach Attorneys - Rights in Florida
What are my rights in Florida?
All adult individuals in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies or health maintenance organizations have certain rights under Florida law. You have a right to fill out a document known as an "advance directive." Such a document reflects in advance the level of medical care you desire under special, serious medical conditions - conditions that would prevent you from telling your doctor how you wish to be treated. For example, if you were in a coma and taken to a healthcare facility, would you want the facility's staff to know your specific wishes about decisions affecting your treatment? An advance directive will reflect your wishes and desires for the level of care you want under such circumstances. This is something the Daytona Beach lawyers could help you with.
