Pennsylvania Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST)

POLST forms turn your wishes for medical treatment into actionable medical orders if you ever become unable to make those decisions yourself. The form stays with you as a reference for all your caregivers. Ideally, a patient should complete this during a discussion with loved ones and family members. It must be signed by your physician, certified nurse practitioner or physician assistant. The form addresses treatments such as CPR, comfort medical interventions, antibiotics and artificially administered hydration/nutrition. Ensure you receive the medical care you want by reviewing and completing the form below.
