Health Care Proxy
Have been asked to sign a health care proxy for my mother who has been determined to be incapable of making her own decisions. She does not have any prior living will or surogate designated. If I sign, will this hold me legally responsible for all of her financial obligations or is this strictly for medical care? Thank you for your assistance.
My father is unresponsive in the ICU and his kidneys have failed. He also has cirrhosis of the liver. He doesn’t have a living will. I am the only child. I need to no if I am legally allowed to have him taken off of dialysis?
Hi, i am a first year nursing student in Virginia and have a quesiton about living wills vs durable power of attorney. Does a durable power of attorney supercede a living will? We are hearing about instances were a patient has a living will and someone has durable power ot attorney and they make the decision over the living will. What is point of a living will if the person you elect to speak to you does not respect your wishes? I could not seem to find much about the legalities in my research and hope that someone can clarify whose has more authority the person themselves via the living will or the person who has durable power of attorney. Thanks in advance for your time and response.
