This week we celebrate: National Healthcare Decisions Day - April 16
National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. National Healthcare Decisions Day is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
Social services staff at Hudson Hospital & Clinic can provide you with a packet of information and forms. They are available to help you with preparing a Power of Attorney for Health Care document or further discuss Advance Medical Directives. Contact the hospital Social Services department at (715) 531-6190.
