Colleague is Unresponsive in Emergency Room

Recently, someone I work with came down with pneumonia and was rushed to the hospital. By the time my colleague realized she needed medical attention, she was unresponsive in the Emergency Room.  The staff in the ER called our place of work to locate a family member and determine if she had a healthcare power of attorney.  Her family lived in a different state, and it was very difficult locating someone.  She ended up on a respirator for a while, but fortunately she did recover.  The whole situation brought home for me, the importance of getting my own wishes written down and communicated – not only to my family, but also my physician and the local hospital.  Be@Ease allows you to accomplish this critical task easily!
