Estate Planning – Advance Health Care Directive

Advance Health Care Directive – Remember the unfortunate lady in Florida and the fight over whether to keep her alive or not after many years in a coma? This document avoids that problem in that a person names those persons whom they trust to make health care decisions for them, if they cannot do so for themselves.

Anyone that has ever had elective surgery knows that hospitals require that you have executed an Advance Health Care Directive before they will even schedule you for the surgery.  The hospital / doctors know the importance of having a person to make health care decisions for you if you cannot yourself.
