Advance Directives

Although not required for admission to Northpointe Surgical, Advance Directives serve to provide family and medical personnel with information concerning your wishes for medical care should you become incapacitated.

In the ambulatory surgery care setting, should you suffer a cardiac or respiratory arrest, or other life threatening situation, you will agree to any resuscitation necessary with a transfer to a higher level of care. If you have an Advance Directive please bring a copy of it with you, it will be included as a part of your medical record.

For more information and Advance Directive Forms approved by the State of Utah please visit the following website and follow the link to the “State of Utah”.
