Emergency and life sustaining treatments


Understanding your wishes and our practice

We will ask you about your care wishes if your heart stops or if you stop breathing. The hospital team needs to know your wishes should you have an emergency while in hospital. All patients are asked about their end-of-life wishes upon on admission to hospital. It is our obligation to listen to your wishes and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
