  • Advanced Directive SC Health Care

An advance directive is a form in which an individual: (1) appoints a person or persons to make health care decisions for the individual if and when the individual loses the capacity to make health care decision (typically called a “health care power of attorney”); and/or (2) provides guidance or instructions for making health care decisions, typically in end-of-life care situations (often called a “living will”). An advance directive is a direction from the patient, not a medical order.

  • POST stands for Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment.  A POST form is a designated document designed for use as part of advance care planning (ACP) and consists of a set of medical orders signed by a patient’s physician addressing key medical decisions consistent with patient goals of care concerning treatment at the end of life that is portable and valid across health care settings. 
  • A POST form should be completed by a trained facilitator or qualified health care professional in conversation with the patient. Effective May 24, 2019, the Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) Act was enacted by adding Chapter 80 to Title 44 of the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, to enable certain persons to execute a POST form signed by a physician, physician assistant, or advanced practice registered nurse that sets forth the patient’s wishes as to health care where the patient has been diagnosed with a serious illness or, based upon medical diagnosis, may be expected to lose capacity within twelve months.

Plowshares 7

all images provided by Kings Bay Plowshare 7

This summer we (Jim, Diego, and I) participated in two anti-nuclear events at Soda City. I shared with that group the news of the Kings Bay Plowshares 7. A cousin of mine, Carmen Trotta, is one of the 7. You can read more about the 7’s action at Kings Bay at the link below.   
 We’d like to start a letter-writing solidarity action so that Carmen and others serving prison time know that they’re not alone. If you’d like to join, let me and Priscilla Preston  know.  

With deep gratitude- to all who want to join with especially deep gratitude to the Kings Bay Plowshares 7 for their courage to act against nuclear weapons, Debbie Billings

Mutual aid projects are a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, not just through symbolic acts or putting pressure on their representatives in government, but by actually building new social relations that are more survivable.  Most mutual aid projects are volunteer-based, with people jumping in to participate because they want to change what is going on right now.  — Big Door Brigade
