MICHIGAN DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR HEALTH CARE

I, ________________________________________________ [print or type your full name], am of sound mind, and I voluntarily make this designation.

I designate ________________________________________________, my ____________________________ [insert name of patient advocate spouse, child, friend, etc.], living at ____________________________________________________________________________________ [address of patient advocate] as my patient advocate to make care, custody and medical treatment decisions for me in the event I become unable to participate in medical treatment decisions. If my first choice cannot service, I designate: ________________________________________________ [name of successor], living at ____________________________________________________________________________________ [address of successor] to serve as patient advocate.

The determination of when I am unable to participate in medical treatment decisions shall be made by my attending physician and another physician or licensed psychologist.

In making decisions for me, my patient advocate shall follow my wishes of which he or she is aware, whether expressed orally, in a living will, or in this designation.

My patient advocate has authority to consent to or refuse treatment on my behalf, and to arrange medical services for me, including admission to a hospital or nursing care facility, and to pay for such services with my funds. My patient advocate shall have access to any medical records to which I have a right.

I expressly authorize my patient advocate to make decisions to withhold or withdraw treatment which would allow me to die and I acknowledge such decision could or would allow my death.

____________________________________________________________________________

I may change my mind at any time by communicating in any manner that this designation does not reflect my wishes.

It is my intent that my family, the medical facility, and any doctors, nurses and other medical personnel involved in my care shall have no civil or criminal liability for honoring my wishes as expressed in this designation or for implementing the decisions of my patient advocate.

Photostatic copies of this document, after it is signed and witnessed, shall have the same legal force as the original document.

(A)    This designation shall not become effective unless the patient is unable to participate in treatment decisions.
