The Palmetto State motto says it all: “Prepared in mind and resources.” And when it comes to our health care, prepared is the name of the game. Under South Carolina’s health care laws you can prepare ahead of time to ensure that you are cared for according to your own wishes. State health statutes can also make sure that all of your medical records are kept confidential. Below you'll find 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.
