Laura Bartlett and Greta Crawford founded an organization to address forced treatments patients receive when hospitalized for COVID-19. The same strategy can be used to protect yourself against other medical hazards as well.
The Caregivers and Consent document they created is an “advance decision” document. So, the moment you enter the hospital, the hospital sta know what they can and cannot do to you; they are legally required to respect your current care decisions. And unlike an Advance Directive (which only kicks in when you are incapacitated) the Caregivers and Consent document goes into effect immediately.
It’s important to complete and notarize your Caregivers and Consent document BEFORE you ever need to go to the hospital.
