New form directs doctors in life-threatening situations
How far would you want doctors to go to save your life after a bad accident? It's a tough question many people may not want to think about it, but they should. The state has created the Maryland Order for Life Sustaining Treatment form, which patients fill out as a guideline for how doctors should proceed. Dr. Barbara Carroll, the medical director at Broadmead senior living community in Cockeysville, talks about the new form and how it is different from living wills and other directives.
