The Idaho medical power of attorney form is used to appoint an individual to make medical decisions on behalf of an Idaho resident. The individual appointed is referred to as the health care agent and the individual appointing is defined as the principal. The durable nature of the power of attorney enables the agent to make decisions for the principal even after they’ve lost the ability to communicate effectively. Often this form is drafted specifically for this reason; to name a trusted agent who will be able to accurately represent the patient when they can no longer do so themselves. The “living will” portion of the document provides the principal with the ability, while they’re still of sound mind, to communicate their end-of-life preferences with regard to the administration of life-sustaining treatments and procedures.
