    Hello I have a legal question regarding an advanced health directive.

    Does a doctor have the right to ignore an advanced health directive if it is to resuscitate a person, even if the advanced health directive states not to resuscitate? What is the law regarding this if the doctor feels it is in the patient's best interest, he can ignore it. What is the law?

    Hope to get a response thanks.
