Health Care Power of Attorney

If you become ill and have to enter a hospital for treatment you never know if your judgment will be impaired while being treated. It is important that you have a family member or a trusted friend that can make decisions concerning your treatment.

In most states you can sign a health care power of attorney to designate someone to make medical decisions for you. Most hospitals are prepared for this situation and have the necessary forms for you to sign and designate the person of your choice to handle your medical decision. It is better to use the paperwork from the hospital that to obtain a power of attorney from outside choice. Many hospitals do not like to honor outside health care power of attorney. So before undergoing any major medical treatments be sure to have the necessary paperwork just in case. A little prior planning can go a long way.
