Power of Attorney: Health Care

Preparing for an accident or emergency may not be a popular topic of conversation, however, having the correct documentation in place when something somber does happen will make life easier for your family and other loved ones. At Elder Law Services of California, we recommend that everyone over the age of 18 appoint a health care power of attorney, just in case something unexpected does happen. Without one, your family will be forced to resolve the matter in court, which ends up becoming a cumbersome and expensive process that could cost thousands of dollars.

What is a Healthcare Power of Attorney?

A health care power of attorney is a document that appoints an agent to make medical decisions on your behalf in the case of an emergency situation where you become incapacitated. The agent has the power to decide:

  • Doctors, nurses, social workers

  • Hospitals or clinics

  • Medications or tests

  • What happens to your body and organs after you pass away

  • Life support treatments (CPR, breathing machine or ventilator, dialysis, feeding tube, blood transfusions, surgery)

With a health care power of attorney, the principal person (you) gets to decide how an emergency medical situation will be handled without leaving family members guessing as to what should be done. Planning ahead with a health care power of attorney can give your caregiver, family members and other loved ones peace of mind when it comes to making decisions about your future health care.
