As of November 2019, only 40% of Americans have a designated healthcare surrogate. It is important for anyone over the age of 18 to have a health care surrogate so that some stress can be alleviated from loved ones when it comes to decision making. It is easier for all involved so that there is no confusion on what the patient would want in that scenario, as well as having family members disagreeing with a course of action. Designation of Health Care Surrogate forms quick and easy to prepare!
Everyone deserves the ability to have good and informed medical care. At Akilah Harris PLLC, we understand how important your own autonomy is when it comes to medical decisions, as well as having an advocate fighting for you if you cannot.
