is a healthcare proxy valid outside of a hospital?
Question by Roberta: is a healthcare proxy valid outside of a hospital?
In California, can the person who is named as the healthcare proxy make decisions concerning a person who is no longer under hospitalization? If the patient is “sent home to die”, is the healthcare proxy still in force?
Answer by pelican
It depends on what the proxy says. It can be written so that it is applicable anywhere.
