Advance directive or living wills policy
Riverside Outpatient Surgery Center recognizes and respects the rights of patients with decision-making capacity to participate in decisions about their medical treatment, including the right to refuse proposed treatment. In the event the patient lacks decision-making capacity, Riverside Outpatient Surgery Center recognizes and respects the right of patients to decide in advance whether they want to review or refuse medical treatment in accordance with the patient’s Advance Directive and State Law.
Riverside Outpatient Surgery Center recognizes that members of the Medical Staff have the primary responsibility for discussing Advance Directive with patients. The Medical Staff’s responsibility is to provide information and education to enable individuals to make decisions regarding their Advance Directive in a thoughtful and informed manner.
It is the policy of the Riverside Outpatient Surgery Center NOT to honor a “No Code” request, also known as DNR (“Do Not Resuscitate”) request. Anesthetic agents and/or medications have the potential for causing a cardiac or respiratory arrest that is reversible once stopped or metabolized. Resuscitative efforts will be implemented on any patient experiencing a life threatening event.
