Designation of Health Care Surrogate
The designation of a Health Car Surrogate is governed by FL Statute 765.203 and is also referred to a “medical power of attorney” and / or an “advanced directive”. The health care surrogate is often addressed in conjunction with a durable general power of attorney, but can also be a stand alone document. It allows you to name a specific individual, who is familiar with your medical treatment wishes and can step in at need to make decisions and judgments on your behalf for all health care treatment if you become incapacitated in any way.
