NovaMed Surgery Center of Sandusky

Advance Directive / Living Will

I understand that the surgery center’s policy does not honor advance directives/living wills, but that it is my right to have an advance directive/living will present in my medical record at the surgery center. I understand that if an emergency medical condition should occur I will be transferred to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment. I understand that if I have an advance directive or living will, the surgery center will still transport me to a hospital, providing the institution with a copy of such document and that at that time, the institution to which I have been transferred will make decisions about following any advance directive or living will.

State information and forms to prepare an advance directive, if you decide to have one, can be found at the following website: www.olrs.ohio.gov/topic-advance-directives
