Advance Directives

Federal law requires us to inform every adult patient about advance directives. WakeMed has policies in place to honor advance directives made in accordance with North Carolina law.

At registration, you will be given written information about state laws regarding advance directives. We can provide copies of the living will and health care power of attorney forms. You may also request copies of our hospital policies regarding living wills and health care powers of attorney.

If you have an appointed health care power of attorney, please bring legal verification.

Organ and Tissue Donation

When you make the decision to donate organs and tissues, you are giving the most generous gift you can give: the gift of life. Recent medical advances make it possible to transplant many types of tissues and organs successfully. If you would like to become an organ donor, ask your nurse or physician for a Uniform Donor Card.

For further information about organ and tissue donation, please call Carolina Donor Services at 1-800-252-2672.
