A Michigan medical power of attorney form is a legal document that designates someone you trust (called a patient advocate or agent) to make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated.
Signing Requirements: You can designate a notary to sign on your behalf if you’re physically unable to sign the document. You must have at least two witnesses see you or the notary sign the durable power of attorney. Witnesses cannot sign if they don’t think that you’re of sound mind. You also should not be under any duress, fraud, or undue influence (Section 700.5501).
Revocation: Our medical power of attorney will remain effective until you revoke it or until you pass or your wishes regarding organ donation (if specified) have been carried out. You can also revoke the document by communicating the revocation in any way, both orally and in writing (Section 700.5510).
