Adult Hospital or Nursing Home Patients That Do Not Have a Health Care Proxy Mobile App
Under the Family Health Care Decisions Act, life-sustaining treatment may be withheld from a patient in a hospital or nursing home who does not have a health care proxy or a surrogate, only if a court makes the decision or two physicians authorized by the facility concur that the patient would die imminently, even if the patient received the treatment, and that provision of the treatment would violate accepted medical standards.
