Health Care DirectiveA Health Care Directive - refers only to powers over healthcare decisions. This is a legal document that allows you to assign the agent who you wish to enforce your medical treatment specifications. This document becomes effective when you no longer have the capacity to make informed decisions. Under Minnesota law, anyone 18 or older can make a health care directive. Also, Minnesota law has made it possible for your living will, durable power-of-attorney and healthcare directive to be combined into one form for all of your health care instructions.
Your health care provider must comply with your wishes stated in the health care directive as long as they fall within reasonable medical practice.
Again, this document can be revoked or revised at any time as long as you have the legal capacity to do so. You should be sure to notify your healthcare professional of any changes to this document.
