Ask Us Anything About… Advance Directives – Tuesday, April 23 at noon.

Why do hospitals ask me if I have an advance directive or plans for end-of-life care?

Even the healthiest person could experience a sudden accident and not be able to speak for himself or herself. Advance directives make clear, in writing, what your wishes are should the time come when you can't express them yourself.

Advance directives can also be used to appoint someone to make decisions for you if you can't do so yourself.

Learn more and have your questions answered by Dr. Lauren Van Scoy, pulmonologist at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

As a health care leader in the region, Penn State Health is always working to decrease physician burnout, which affects 60 percent of doctors nationwide with depression, lack of engagement and early retreat from the profession. “See Me Now,” a program to help decrease physician burnout by reuniting patients with their emergency department physicians.

“In the emergency department, patients don’t have repeated contact with the doctors like they do in primary or specialty care – There’s no time to build that bond or relationship that can be so rewarding, and often doctors don’t know the outcomes.” – Linda Gangai, program manager for quality and patient safety outcomes.

Emergency department doctors or patients who want to reconnect for a “See Me Now” reunion are invited to contact Linda Gangai: 717-531-0003, x287210
