How can a POLST form be helpful to me or my loved one?

As a physician order, the POLST follows a patient through the health care system. For example, if you complete a POLST form in the hospital, your wishes regarding medical interventions will be honored by medical professionals wherever you are receiving care including home, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. The POLST form can help prevent unwanted treatment, reduce suffering and ensure your wishes are honored.
