POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR HEALTH CARE (LIVING WILL)
This Power of Attorney is to authorize, when you are unable to make decisions, a person known as the Patient Advocate to make all decisions regarding your medical care. You direct when you would want care withdrawn and/or withheld for any kind of medical treatment or procedure. As long as you are capable of making the medical decisions, you will be in charge. The Power of Attorney for Health Care is only effective upon you not having the capacity to give, withdraw or withhold consent for medical care.
A patient advocate should be someone whom you trust to make medical decisions when you are incapable of doing so. If, in the future, you have a condition or illness that is irreversible and you will not recover from an unconscious state and will eventually die, you can ask that extraordinary measures be withdrawn. Ideally, you want to choose someone who is calm under pressure and who will be assertive about your health care wishes if others argue against them.
The Patient Advocate is given the right to speak to your treaters and obtain your medical records once you are unable to.
If you want your organs donated, you can also express this in the Power of Attorney for Health Care.
