What to do with these forms
Copies of the Health Care directive (Living Will) and the Durable
Power of Attorney for Health Care should be given to your physician
to be included in your medical record, to any person to whom you
give your durable power of attorney, including any successor agents
you may have named, and to your personal attorney. The originals
should be kept by a designated person or in a designated place where
they can be obtained in any emergency situation.
For further information
These forms have been provided to you as a public service by the
Washington State Medical Association. Any legal questions you
may have about the execution or operation of a Durable Power of
Attorney for Health Care should be directed to a lawyer.
