Living Will Declaration – Columbus, OH
Preparing Your Living Will Declaration
A Living Will Declaration is your declaration in the event that you are in a terminal condition or a permanently unconscious state, stating that you do not wish to be kept alive by mechanical means or a respirator. If two or more doctors have determined that you are in a terminal condition or a permanently unconscious state, those doctors must then contact the three people you list on your Living Will Declaration and discuss their findings with those individuals.
The living will declarations drafted by Robert D. Erney conform with the Catholic Church’s teaching that although one may not wish to be kept alive by mechanical means, one should still receive nutrition and hydration, whether orally or by intravenous fluids. Everyone should have a living will declaration and provide a copy of it to their primary healthcare provider.
