Living Wills and Healthcare Proxies

Living wills and healthcare proxies are legal documents that describe your wishes about the type of medical care you would want to receive if you were unable to make those decisions for yourself. They also allow you to appoint someone you trust to make medical decisions for you. It is always a good idea to discuss your wishes or concerns with your family and physician prior to your hospitalization. For additional information and forms, please call the Yale New Haven Hospital Admissions Office at (203) 688-2221.
