We recommend you talk with your provider about Provider Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST).

POLST (Provider Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) is a medical order that gives patients more control over their end-of-life wishes and care.

Produced on a distinctive bright green form and signed by the patient and her/his physician or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), POLST specifies the type of medical treatment that a patient wishes to receive towards the end of life.
