What is a Designation of Healthcare Surrogate?


A Designation of Healthcare Surrogate nominates an individual to make medical decisions on your behalf. It also specifies the types of treatment your surrogate is allowed to consent to and names alternates if your first choice is not able or willing to serve as your healthcare surrogate. When you are awake and have capacity, your decisions always supersede those of your surrogate.
