The Wyoming medical power of attorney form is a legal document that allows an individual to select a surrogate to handle health care decisions on their behalf. The main purpose of the document is to ensure that the principal’s medical preferences are administered in the chance that they lack the ability to make competent decisions. Generally, the chosen surrogate will be the principal’s spouse, relative, or close friend. Whoever is selected should be knowledgable of the principal’s choices regarding end-of-life medical procedures and life-prolonging treatments.
Advance Directive (Medical POA + Living Will) – Allows a resident of Wyoming to make end-of-life medical decisions (living will) and to select someone else as their health care surrogate (medical power of attorney).
