Power of AttorneyA durable power of attorney for healthcare designates a trusted person, such as a relative or close friend, to act as a proxy in making your healthcare decisions if you are unable. This document is more flexible than a healthcare directive because it can be applied to decisions about all kinds of healthcare. It can be changed or revoked by the signer at any time.
Most people who enter the hospital recover and are soon able to leave. However, should you require life-sustaining or emergency treatment, the hospital and doctors are prepared to assist you.
