A healthcare proxy is a document in which you name someone to make decisions about your medical care if you cannot do so yourself. This might happen if you're injured or sick and can't communicate with doctors or if you're permanently unconscious.
The person you choose as your healthcare proxy should be someone who knows your wishes about medical care and who you trust to make decisions for you.
It's important to talk with your healthcare proxy about the treatments you would or wouldn't want and to share your health information with them so they can make informed decisions on your behalf.
