POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR HEALTH CARE
By appointing a person as having power of attorney for health care, you are giving that trusted friend or loved one (called an agent) authority to consent, to refuse to consent, or to withdraw consent to any care, treatment, service, or procedure to maintain, diagnose, or treat a physical or mental condition. This power is subject to any statement of your wishes and any limitations that you include in the power of attorney document. You may describe in this document any types of treatment that you do not desire. In addition, a court can remove the power of your agent to make health care decisions for you if your agent authorizes anything that is illegal, acts contrary to your known desires, or where your desires are unknown, does anything that is clearly contrary to your best interests.
