This morning’s “Tools” post is about the Oklahoma Living Will (part of an Advance Directive for Healthcare).
This document allows you make decisions about how your end-of-life are is handled and appoint a person you trust to help the doctors carry out your decisions. Most other states have the same type of living will provisions.
If the living will is done properly, the doctors, hospital and family are required to follow it:
A physician or other health care provider who is furnished the original or a photocopy of the advance directive shall make it a part of the declarant’s medical record and, if unwilling to comply with the advance directive, promptly so advise the declarant.
