“Health care facilities and providers; discipline under the civil rights law”

A health care facility must provide each patient with written information concerning the patient’s rights concerning advance directives. The health care facility must document in the patient’s medical records whether or not the patient has executed an advance directive. A health care provider or facility may not require a patient to execute an advance directive or to execute a new advance directive using the facility’s or provider’s forms. A health care provider or facility may be sanctioned, face revocation of license, or be fined up to $1,000 per incident if the health care provider or facility requires an individual to execute or waive an advance directive as a condition of treatment or admission.
