A health care proxy is a legal document that gives a patient the ability to appoint another party to make health care decisions on their behalf in the event that they become incapable of making the decisions for themselves. The document will only be used if the party receiving care is found to be not competent enough to make logical medical decisions.
Some states require that an adult individual fill out a health care proxy. The form will require personal information about the filing party, including name and address. Information about the agent will also be necessary. The filing party must ensure that the person they choose is legally able to be an agent. Both parties should sign this form, and it may also need to have a witness and be notarized as well.
