Hawaii Living Will
A. Statement of Declarant
Declaration made this _________ day of _________(month, year). I, _________, being of sound mind, and understanding that I have the right to request that my life be prolonged to the greatest extent possible, wilfully and voluntarily make known my desire that my dying shall not be artificially prolonged under the circumstances set forth below, and do hereby declare:
My instructions shall prevail even if they create a conflict with the desires of my relatives, hospital policies, or the principles of those providing my care.
If I should develop a terminal condition or a permanent loss of the ability to communicate concerning medical treatment decisions, with no reasonable chance of regaining this ability, I do not want to have my life prolonged. I would not want to be subjected to surgery or resuscitation. Nor would I then wish to have life sustaining medicine or procedures. Instead, I request care, including medicine and procedures, for the purpose of providing comfort and pain relief.
I have also considered whether I want tube feeding to be provided and have selected one of the following provisions by putting a mark in the space provided:
[ ] I do NOT want my life prolonged by tube or other artificial feeding or provision of fluids by a tube if my condition is as stated above.
[ ] I DO want my life prolonged by tube or other artificial feeding and provision of fluids by a tube if my condition is as stated above.
If neither provision is selected or if both are selected, it shall be presumed that tube or other artificial feeding or provision of fluids by tube are requested to prolong the declarant's life.
This declaration shall control in all circumstances.
I understand the full import of this declaration and I am emotionally and mentally competent to make this declaration.
