In Pennsylvania, capacitated adults have the right to decide whether to accept, reject or discontinue medical care and treatment. There may be times, however, when a person cannot make his or her wishes known to a medical provider. For example, a person may be incompetent*, in a terminal condition or in a state of permanent unconsciousness, and unable to tell his or her doctor what kind of care or treatment he or she would like to receive or not to receive. This can be addressed through an advanced directive.
