Will a husband's wishes be followed over the adult children with the medical power of attorney?
MS-P021 Mississippi Advance Health Care Directive Statutory Form includes Living Will
This is a statutory form provided in the Mississippi Code that allows you to give instructions about your own health care, name someone else to make health-care decisions for you and designate a physician to have primary responsibility for your health care. An adult or emancipated minor may provide instructions regarding their health care either orally or in writing and may execute a power of attorney for health care, which may authorize an agent to make any health-care decision the principal could have made while having capacity. The power must be in writing, dated, signed and either witnessed by at least two individuals (each of whom witnessed either the signing of the instrument by the principal or the principal's acknowledgement of the signature or of the instrument) or acknowledged before a notary public at any place within Mississippi.
