You may be faced with questions about your future health when you are hospitalized. The Chester County Hospital patients have the right to create Advance Directives, which are legal papers that allow you to decide now what you might want to happen if you are no longer healthy enough to make such decisions. You have the right to expect that we will support your wishes expressed in these documents. Additionally, you have the right to ask about and discuss the ethics of your care, including resolving any conflicts that might arise, including, but not limited to, deciding against, withholding or withdrawing life-sustaining treatment.
The Pennsylvania Department of Aging provides assistance in understanding advanced directives/living wills.
