Living Wills

A living will is a document that expresses the wishes of a person regarding life sustaining treatment once the person has become terminally ill or permanently unconscious. The living will becomes effective only when you are unable to communicate your wishes and are terminally ill or permanently unconscious. The instrument gives your treating physicians authority to follow your instructions regarding the use or non use of life sustaining treatment when you are permanently unconscious or terminally ill. A living will can be changed or revoked by you at any time. No other person may revoke or modify your living will. The determination as to whether you are in a permanently unconscious state or terminally ill, beyond medical help, with little chance of recovery will be made by two physicians who are required to examine you and agree that you are in the aforementioned condition. A living will gives instructions on the use of cardiopulmonary resuscitation ("CPR") and the use of hydration and nutrition devices.
