Patient Advocates are available to support patients and families in treatment decisions, crisis interventions, or to help individuals access resources available within the hospital system. Our goals are to serve as a liaison between the patient and the hospital, to keep the lines of communication open at all times, and to find solutions quickly.
Call Patient Advocacy at (443) 481-4820 or -4821. Office hours are 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Advance Directives are specific legal forms, approved by the Maryland Legislature, in which you can give direction concerning end-of-life decisions, such as the use of life-sustaining treatment.
Advance Directives include Appointment of a Health Care Agent for Health Care Decision-Making; Health Care Instructions; and Living Will.
The Appointment of a Health Care Agent (Medical Power of Attorney) is a legal document that lets you name someone you know and trust to make decisions for you concerning health care for your child in the event that you are not able. Anne Arundel Medical Center provides this information to all patients as part of a legislative requirement. It is not related to your diagnosis and is meant to make you aware of your health care options. For more information, call Patient Advocacy at (443) 481-4820 or -4821.
