An advance directive tells your doctor what kind of care you would like to have if you become unable to make medical decisions (if you are in a coma, for example). If you are admitted to Grays Harbor Community Hospital, our staff will talk to you about advance directives. The directives describe what kind of care you want if you have an illness that you are unlikely to recover from or if you are permanently unconscious. Advance directives tell your doctor that you don't want certain kinds of treatment.
