An Estate Planning Document equally as important as a Last Will and Testament is a Directive to Physicians. A Directive to Physicians, also known as a Living Will, is the document that states your wishes regarding life support.
There was recently a case out of Minnesota where a Judge recently issued a restraining order stopping a hospital from disconnecting a COVID 19 patient’s ventilator. Following the restraining order being issued, the patient was moved from a Minnesota hospital to a facility here in Texas. This story is a prime example of the importance of having a Directive to Physicians in order to let your family and doctors know your wishes.
Whether you want to be hooked up to life support or not, everyone can benefit from having a Directive to Physicians in place.
