Under Colorado law, you have the right to accept or refuse medical treatment. Advance Directives are written instructions that are used if you become unable to think clearly or speak for yourself. They are written ahead of the time for when you might need them. You are not required to have an advance directive in order to receive care and treatment. Longmont United Hospital will honor your Advance Directive wishes.
