Patient Forms and Documents
We realize a hospital stay can be stressful and overwhelming. Our dedicated team work collaboratively (physicians, nurses, technicians, dietitians, volunteers, administration and members of the support staff) to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The following forms and documents will be beneficial to you, should you need to get information from your medical record or wish to provide care information to your family and medical caregivers.

No one likes to think about the end of life, but having the discussions with a spouse, significant other or relatives can help you plan so that death occurs according to your wishes. This planning should include putting your wishes in writing and assigning a specific person or persons to make healthcare or final decisions for you when or if you are not able to make such decisions yourself.
Our web partner HEALTHWISE provides a wealth of information on advanced directives, such as:
- Writing an Advanced Directive
- Care at the End of Life
- Choosing a Health Care Agent
- Should I receive Artificial Hydration and Nutrition?
- Should I receive Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Artificial Ventilation?
- Should I stop Kidney Dialysis?
- Should I stop Life-Prolonging Treatment?
Benefis Hospitals honors any advance directive that is properly written and signed.
