Before Your Stay
An Advance Directive allows you to provide direction about your care even if you cannot speak for yourself at the time. It also allows you to state your wishes regarding the withholding of life-sustaining treatment and pain control, and allows you to appoint someone of your choice to direct this care, if you wish.
All information is helpful to your doctor, the nursing professionals caring for you
and the family or friends who may be called upon if and when you cannot
speak for yourself.

Instructions for completing an Advance Directive
What to Bring
For your comfort, you may wish to bring a pair of pajamas or a nightgown, slippers, robe, toothbrush and hairbrush for use during your hospital stay.
If you wear eyeglasses, dentures or hearing aids, be sure to store them properly with your belongings when they are not in use. Ask your nurse for a container labeled with your name to safely store your dentures. Please don't place any of these items on your meal tray or in the tissue boxes.
Tobacco Free Facility
At Woodland Healthcare we are committed to caring for the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. In keeping with the California State Law that prohibits smoking in public places, Woodland Healthcare is a tobacco-free facility. This means that smoking and the use of any tobacco product is strictly prohibited anywhere on our campus grounds, including our buildings, parking lots, and walkways. This policy applies to everyone, including patients, visitors, medical staff members, volunteers, vendors, and employees.
People who smoke or use tobacco will need to refrain from doing so on our campus. Nicotine replacement therapy can be ordered for patients. If you are a patient and you smoke or use tobacco, please consult with your physician. Upon request, we can provide smoking cessation resources or we can refer you for follow up assistance with the American Cancer Society.
