Advanced Care Planning (ACP) with and Without an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV)

“An elderly obtunded patient presents via EMS from a nursing home to the emergency department with decreased blood pressure, increased pulse, labored breathing, and bradycardia. The patient has multiple chronic problems. The family states that their mother’s quality of life is poor. The nursing home advised the Paramedics that the patient does not have an Advanced Directive. The emergency provider speaks with the family to determine whether extreme measures are desired to prolong life in event of life threatening medical emergency. The family states they would like to initiate an Advanced Directive.”
