Death with Dignity Policies for Washington State Hospitals
Hospitals and health systems may have policies that restrict certain health care services they find objectionable or are unable to administer, such as participation in parts of the Death with Dignity Act.
We have reviewed and summarized hospital Death with Dignity policies to provide an online tool for patients and families.

Each hospital has its own profile that describes which activities the hospital permits or restricts when a patient asks for assistance using the Death with Dignity Act.
