Eligibility: Patients who are seriously ill or frail
Services Provided: With emphasis on patients’ wishes about the care they receive, the National POLST Paradigm helps patients get the medical treatments they want, and avoid the medical treatments they do not want, when they are seriously ill or frail. It's about helping people live the way they want until they die. Web locator for state's sample forms. The POLST form is a medical order emergency personnel can follow whenever, and wherever, the patient has a medical emergency and can't speak for himself/herself.
