A Designation of Healthcare Surrogate for Minor Children nominates an individual to make medical decisions for your minor child if you are unable or unwilling to do so. 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 child’s healthcare surrogate. When you are available, your choices as your child’s natural parent and guardian always govern. In the rare situation where neither parent can be reached, this document tells schools and healthcare providers who has a legal right to make healthcare decisions for your child.
