Except to the extent you state otherwise, this Durable Power of Attorney gives the person you name as your Agent the authority to make any and all health care decisions for you when you are no longer capable of making them yourself.
"Health care" means any treatment, service or procedure to maintain, diagnose or treat your physical or mental condition. Your Agent, therefore, can have the power to make a broad range of health care decisions for you. Your Agent may consent, refuse to consent, or withdraw consent to medical treatment and may make decisions about withdrawing or withholding life-sustaining treatment.
Your Agent cannot consent or direct any of the following: commitment to a state institution, sterilization, or termination of treatment if you are pregnant and if the withdrawal of that treatment is deemed likely to terminate the pregnancy unless the failure to withhold the treatment will be physically harmful to you or prolong severe pain which cannot be alleviated by medication.
