 "Surrogate Decision Making"


Coming in April 2018


Who can make health care decisions for an individual no longer capable of making decisions, has no designated health care agent and has no guardian?


Historically, health care providers have turned to family members to provide informed consent in these situations.


Since 1999, Hawai`i’s UHCDA has provided a mechanism for surrogates to make decisions for incapacitated individuals. Come and find out what the law says.
