ADVANCE DIRECTIVE! Date. Sign. Notarize.

Sign a DNR, a POLST, to avoid CPR, and your doctor should tell you what your choices are. Designate a Surrogate, or an Agent, as your Power of Attorney for Health Care, on an Advance Directive.

For more information, please see an attorney! This is intended as information only, and not legal advice, I am not an attorney.

Date. Sign. Notarize.  Please enjoy the video which was Written by Nicole D'Arcy and Anna Krawisz as part of a Stanford Medical School project.
