Will My Georgia Advanced Directive be Honored if I am Admitted for Treatment in a Different State?

The laws honoring advance directives differ from state to state, so it is unclear whether a Georgia advance directive would be valid in a different state. Because an advance directive is an expression of your wishes about medical care, it will influence that care no matter where you are admitted. However, if you spend a great deal of time in more than one state, you might consider signing an advance directive that meets all the requirements of each state.
