When you are admitted to Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center, we will ask you if you have prepared the New Mexico Living Will and/or New Mexico Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions documents. If so, we will put that information in your medical record, and we will honor your wishes.
If you do not have either document and would like to learn more about them, or if you have questions about making medical decisions, contact your family physician or the legal counsel of your choice.
Medical Records and Registration have copies of New Mexico law for Advance Directives. They are available at your convenience.
