Medical Power of Attorney South Dakota Form – Adobe PDF
The Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, a resident of South Dakota may name an individual, known as an Agent, who will decide all aspects of your health care when you cannot speak for yourself. There are a few restrictions as to your choice as the Agent. Whomever you do choose should live or at least be available close-by. And vitally important, your Agent must not only be someone who shares your views as to appropriate health care and end of life treatment options.
Through your Living Will, and end of life document without the use of an agent, you set down in writing the types of life saving/terminating medical procedures and the conditions you would instruct for yourself.
