Louisiana Health Care Laws

From our first contact with doctors when we give them the personal medical information necessary for treatment to making our wishes on how we want to be treated at the end of our lives, there are laws in the Bayou State intended to protect our medical choices. And this section can give you the resources and information to protect yourself. Below you'll find Louisiana-specific health care laws on a number of topics, including methods for declaring your wishes regarding life-prolonging medical procedures (using living wills and durable power of attorney) and laws on access to medical records.
