CATHOLIC DECLARATION ON LIFE AND DEATH ADVANCE DIRECTIVE

(HEALTH SURROGATE DESIGNATION/LIVING WILL) OF

_________________________________________________________ (Name)

Introduction I am executing this Catholic Declaration on Life and Death while I am of sound mind. It is intended to designate a surrogate and provide guidance in making medical decisions in the event I am incapacitated or unable to express my own wishes.

Statement of Faith I believe that I have been created for eternal life in union with God. The truth that my life is a precious gift from God has profound implications for the question of stewardship over my life. I have a duty to preserve my life and to use it for God’s glory, but the duty to preserve my life is not absolute, for I may reject life-prolonging procedures that are insufficiently beneficial or excessively burdensome. Suicide and euthanasia are never morally acceptable options.1 If I should become irreversibly and terminally ill, I request to be fully informed of my condition so that I can prepare myself spiritually for death and witness to my belief in Christ’s redemption.

Designation of Health Care Surrogate In the event that I become incapacitated, I designate as my surrogate for health care decisions (if no surrogate is to be appointed, please write “none” in place of “name” below):

Name:_________________________________________________________________

Address:_______________________________________________________________

Phones (H, W, C):________________________________________________________

If my surrogate is unwilling or unable to perform his or her duties or cannot be contacted, I wish to designate as my alternate surrogate (if no alternate surrogate is to be appointed, please write “none” in place of “name” below):

Name:_________________________________________________________________

Address:_______________________________________________________________

Phones (H, W, C):________________________________________________________

This directive will permit my surrogate to make health care decisions, and to provide, withhold, or withdraw consent on my behalf; to apply for public benefits to defray the cost of health care; to receive my personal health care information; and to authorize my admission to or transfer from a health care facility. My surrogate is further appointed as my “Personal Representative.”2 This directive is not being made as a condition of treatment or admission to a health care facility. This document must be signed and witnessed on the other side to be valid.

1 Cf United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Ethical & Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services (USCCB: Washington,

DC 2009), Part Five. 2 As defined by 45 CFR 164.502(g), for purposes of compliance with Federal HIPAA Laws and Regulations (the Health Insurance Portability

and Accountability Act of 1996).

Living Will The following gives guidance for carrying out my wishes at the end of life. If at any time I am incapacitated and I have a terminal condition or I have an end-stage condition, and if my attending or treating physician and another consulting physician have determined that there is no reasonable medical probability of my recovery from such condition(s), my health care surrogate (designated above, if any) will be authorized to make decisions for me in accordance with my wishes expressed in this Declaration. If my surrogate cannot be contacted (or I have not named a surrogate), then I request and direct that each of the following be considered in making a decision for me.

That:

1. I be provided care and comfort, and that my pain be relieved.

2. No inappropriate, excessively burdensome nor disproportionate means be used to prolong my life. This can include medical or surgical procedures.

3. There should be a presumption in favor of providing nutrition and hydration to me, including medically assisted nutrition and hydration, unless:

 They cannot reasonably be expected to prolong my life; or

 The means used to deliver the nutrition and hydration are excessively burdensome and do not offer sufficient benefit or would cause me significant physical discomfort; or

 I am imminently dying from an irreversible condition.

4. Nothing be done with the intention of causing my death.

5. Spiritual care be provided, including sacraments whenever possible. Additional Instructions

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Signatures Required It is my intention that my surrogate, family and physicians honor this declaration as the expression of my treatment wishes. I understand the full import of this declaration, and I am emotionally and mentally competent to make this declaration.

POWER OF ATTORNEY

DO NOT RESUSCITATE

POLST

MOLST

CONSENT

• FREE AND INFORMED (ERD 28, 27, 26, 59)

28. Each person or the person’s surrogate should have access to medical and moral information and counseling so as to be able to form his or her conscience. The free and informed health care decision of the person or the person’s surrogate is to be followed so long as it does not contradict Catholic principles.

CONSENT

• FREE AND INFORMED (ERD 28, 27, 26, 59)

27. Free and informed consent requires that the person or the person’s surrogate receive all reasonable information about the essential nature of the proposed treatment and its benefits; its risks, side-effects, consequences, and cost; and any reasonable and morally legitimate alternatives, including no treatment at all.

CONSENT

• FREE AND INFORMED (ERD 28, 27, 26, 59)

26. The free and informed consent of the person or the person’s surrogate is required for medical treatments and procedures, except in an emergency situation when consent cannot be obtained and there is no indication that the patient would refuse consent to the treatment.

CONSENT

• FREE AND INFORMED (ERD 28, 27, 26, 59)

59. The free and informed judgment made by a competent adult patient concerning the use or withdrawal of life-sustaining procedures should always be respected and normally complied with, unless it is contrary to Catholic moral teaching.

CONSENT

• PROXY (ERD 25, 24)

25. Each person may identify in advance a representative to make health care decisions as his or her surrogate in the event that the person loses the capacity to make health care decisions. Decisions by the designated surrogate should be faithful to Catholic moral principles and to the person’s intentions and values, or if the person’s intentions are unknown, to the person’s best interests. In the event that an advance directive is not executed, those who are in a position to know best the patient’s wishes—usually family members and loved ones—should participate in the treatment decisions for the person who has lost the capacity to make health care decisions.

CONSENT

• PROXY (ERD 25, 24)

24. In compliance with federal law, a Catholic health care institution will make available to patients information about their rights, under the laws of their state, to make an advance directive for their medical treatment. The institution, however, will not honor an advance directive that is contrary to Catholic teaching. If the advance directive conflicts with Catholic teaching, an explanation should be provided as to why the directive cannot be honored.

PROXY CONSENT (LEGAL):

Process by which people with the legal right to consent to medical treatment for themselves or for a minor or a ward delegate that right to another person.

3 fundamental constraints:

1. Person making the delegation must have the right to consent.

2. Person must be legally and medically competent to delegate the right to consent.

3. Right to consent must be delegated to a legally and medically competent adult.

ADVANCE DIRECTIVES

• Written instructions

• Regarding medical care preferences

• When unable to make one’s own health care decisions

• Guide for one’s family and doctors

• Can help reduce confusion or disagreement

• Generally legally binding

Advance directives include:

• Living will

• Medical or health care power of attorney (POA)

• Do not resuscitate (DNR) order
