What Is A Designation Of Healthcare Surrogate?
The Health Care Surrogate Designation is a document naming another person (the “Health Care Surrogate” or “Surrogate”) as one’s representative to make medical decisions for one if one is unable to make them themselves. In addition to your main surrogate, a person can also name alternate surrogates to act if their primary surrogate is unable to.
Medical decisions tend to be time urgent and sensitive. Because of this, the person chosen to act as a Surrogate should be someone who is both trusted and can easily reached in the event of a medical emergency.
If a person wishes, they can also leave some instructions in the document for the surrogate on how the wish to be cared for.
