Mary De Freze, 81, has heart problems, chronic lung disease and a history of falling. At the end of her life, De Freze said, “I don’t want to be in a lot of pain and I don’t want to be kept alive by machines.” Stonebrook Healthcare Center staff helped her put those wishes on a Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment form. An effort is underway to create an electronic registry of the forms so emergency responders can quickly access them regardless of where patients are.
