NCLEX Question of the Week #11

Many documents fall under the category of an advanced directive. One of the most common legal documents is called “Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care” and works to:

  1. Review a person’s personal preferences for medical care in the future.
  2. Authorize another person to make medical decisions for a person, should they themselves be unable.
  3. Assign a legal authority in making medical decisions while honoring the spoken word of the family.
  4. Define what care should be administered or withheld by health care professionals, no matter which medical facility the patient finds themselves in.
