Acceptance of appointment
- • withdrawal
For an appointment under a power of attorney for health care to be effective, the attorney-in-fact must accept the appointment in writing. Subject to the right of the attorney-in-fact to withdraw, the acceptance imposes a duty on the attorney-in-fact to make health care decisions on behalf of the principal at such time as the principal becomes incapable. Until the principal becomes incapable, the attorney-in-fact may withdraw by giving notice to the principal. After the principal becomes incapable, the attorney-in-fact may withdraw by giving notice to the health care provider. [1989 c.914 §5; 1993 c.767 §6]
