Posts about “POLST”

POLST refers to the National Portable Medical Order Form. This is a single form that makes it easier for health professionals to honor a patient’s medical treatment wishes in the United States. A single form is simple to understand and easy to apply to a variety of healthcare situations. In the case where you’re unable to express your own end-of-life or medical wishes, a POLST form empowers patients to make sure their wishes are heard. Having your medical wishes addressed formally is a huge relief in times of need.
