I a short while ago visited my cousin who was admitted into the medical center for a significant sickness. The health practitioner asked him if he had an progress health care directive.
My cousin paused. The physician then described what he meant by an progress directive and then gave a state of affairs in which the professional medical team would want to know his needs if he could not converse for himself.
He also tried to reassure him that all was okay. This was just information and facts they like to know.
