About Health care Decision-Making Substitutes
Health Care Agent or POA
An advance health care directive could take the form of a living will, a health care power of attorney, or a combination of the two. Such documents provide guidelines for medical decisions that should be made in the event the individual is no longer able to make decisions on their own behalf.
Health Care Representative
A health care agent is appointed in advance to make medical decisions, while a health care representative is appointed to make decisions in the absence of a prior appointment. As an institution, RCFS can be designated by a court to be both. Contact us for more information.
