(755 ILCS 43/40)
Declaration-Part of patient's medical record.
Upon being presented with a declaration, a physician or other provider shall
make the declaration a part of the principal's medical record. When acting
under authority of a declaration, a physician or provider must comply with it
to the fullest extent possible, consistent with reasonable medical practice,
the availability of treatments requested, and applicable law. If the physician
or other provider is unwilling at any time to comply with the
declaration, the physician or provider may withdraw from providing treatment
consistent with the exercise of independent medical judgment and must promptly
notify the principal and the attorney-in-fact and document the notification in
the principal's medical record.
