Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Health Care Surrogate Act. Changes certain uses of the term "qualified physician" to "qualified health care practitioner". Provides that before voiding or revoking a uniform practitioner orders for life-sustaining treatment (POLST) form, National POLST form, or another state's POLST Paradigm portable medical orders form consented to by the individual, that individual's legally authorized surrogate decision maker shall first: engage in consultation with the attending health care practitioner; consult the patient's advance directive, if available; and make a good faith effort to act consistently, at all times, with the patient's known wishes, or, if the patient's wishes are not known, using substituted judgment as the standard. Provides that a health care provider facility shall comply with a POLST form, National POLST form, another state's POLST Paradigm portable medical orders form, or an out-of-hospital Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order sanctioned by a State in the United States that: has been executed by an adult; and is apparent and immediately available.
