Advance Directive (MS)

The Mississippi Advance Health Care Directive is a legal document that protects your right to refuse medical treatment you do not want, or to request treatment you do want, in the event you lose the ability to make decisions yourself. You may complete any or all of the three parts of the directive. Part 1: Power of Attorney for Health Care. You can name an individual as agent to make health care decisions for you if you become incapable of making your own decisions or if you want someone else to make those decisions for you now, even though you are still capable. Part 2: Instructions for Health Care. You can give specific instructions about providing, withholding, or withdrawal of treatment to keep you alive if you are in an end-of-life stage, including the provision of artificial nutrition and hydration, as well as the provision of pain relief. Part 3: Primary Physician. You can designate a physician to have primary responsibility for your health care.
