A health care directive is a written document that informs others of your health care wishes if you are unable to communicate them yourself. Having a plan in place can save your family the stress and fear of having to decide what you’d want during a time of illness or injury.
Health care directives are available at Sleepy Eye Medical Center and can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. Our staff is available to answer your questions and provide helpful tools to assist you in completing a health care directive in accordance to Minnesota state laws.
Sleepy Eye Medical Center welcomes family, friends and other guests to visit you during your stay. If you would like the support of a loved one during the night, please talk with your nurse.
Clergy are welcome to visit anyone at any time, with patient and/or family permission.
