The Federal Patient Self-Determination Act requires hospitals to ask all admitted patients if they have an Advance Directive, such as a "Living Will" or a "Durable Power of Attorney" that impacts decisions regarding their medical treatment. You may visit our Advance Directives page in the left navigation to read answers to the most commonly asked questions about advance directives. If you would like more information about this federal law, or the Virginia Natural Death Act, please ask your nurse for a free booklet.
