A medical POA or healthcare power of attorney is a special type of legal authorization when it comes to making medical decisions on your behalf. The document stipulates the identity of the person or persons you find trustworthy to make health care decisions in your name and on your behalf. Essentially, the healthcare POA determines who will be your healthcare representative when the time comes you are no longer able to make decisions on your own. Again, this is a particular POA type, which focuses entirely on healthcare-related decisions.
In the event that you are not able to speak for yourself, your healthcare representative is charged with making decisions concerning all medical procedures and care.
