Medical Power of Attorney South Carolina Form – Adobe PDF
The South Carolina medical power of attorney form allows you to choose a surrogate to handle your health care facility and treatment options in the chance you cannot make them yourself. The most common selection for the surrogate is your spouse, relative, or close friend. As the person selected is not paid other than expenses reimbursed for lodging and travel, you will want to select someone who will assist you in your needs for personal reasons. Note that the agent selected cannot be health care personnel looking after you unless the person is directly related by blood. If you would like to make end-of-life decisions without the use of an agent, you can do so by authorizing a living will.
