POST is law as of July!

Indiana POST – July 1, 2013

It’s final! The governor signed HE 1182, Physician Order for Scope of Treatment, into law earlier this week. The POST form will be available for use in Indiana beginning July 1, 2013. Although the form cannot be completed without a discussion regarding end of life wishes, hospices may want to insert this form into their admission packets and have it available should a patient wish to use it. Physician signature is required because the form is an order. IAHHC will offer webinars on POST in the near future.

Angel Corps supports the use of this form and will be attending the near future trainings.

Thank you to our local attorney, Keith Hoffman, and others for making this possible.
