It may sound like the title of a low-budget horror film, but the reality is much worse. A comatose person, called a flat liner by medical staff, may be in a vegetative state for several months and possibly years. It creates hell on earth for the family.
Living but Not Really Alive
It may be the result of a serious accident or heart attack amon g other sources. A person who does not respond in a coma can not give doctors any instructions about what treatment to give and whether the life support system should be shut down. Caregivers will not guess anyone; they will keep an individual alive unless otherwise announced.
The family confronts the anguish of watching what happens. The chances of their loved one ever being resurrected are almost nil, but the body is still alive. The nest and even life insurance can not be affected until the patient breathes his last. It's a horrible nightmare to watch.
The group's legal plans should have services that include the establishment of living conditions and medical powers. Nationwide prepaid legal services have such a benefit offer for organizations to consider.
Take a Resolution to a Bad Situation
Nationwide uses a nationwide network of lawyers to assist members of the group's legal plan. The living will and the medical powers are two separate things that can solve a tragic case.
How this prepaid legal service benefit is provided is simple. A group member in the legal field sits down with a nationwide lawyer (who practices social distancing) and discusses the design of the living will. The document contains which treatments should not be used and this is important. Members may have certain religious beliefs that should be respected, and all practices contrary to a person's beliefs may be prevented in the language of the living testament.
Medical powers are about decision-making. There must be someone who will give instructions to the care facility about what to do. This may include turning off life support. Medical proxies appoint a person to make the decisions that the group's legal planning member wants to make.
The benefits of a living will and medical powers focus on closure. No one would want loved ones to suffer or be deprived of housing benefits. A crisis that has gone beyond all hope of positive change can be ended with instructions from the documents. It is better than letting the patient linger in a state of limbo.
Living Will Empathy
Every decision to end a loved one's life is painful and formulating the authorization document is not easy. Our lawyers have superior staff knowledge. They will patiently listen to a plan member's concerns, educate the person about the legal requirements, and then prepare the living wills and medical powers. All interactions with a plan member are performed with courtesy and respect.
Customers work out the benefit
We want to offer an advantage that everyone in an organization can use. We ask the customer to tell us what the employees can use when it comes to group benefits. We will explain all our prepaid legal services carefully and answer all the questions that the decision makers ask. The choices made by the employer will be included in the final planning document. We will provide the services and administration that guarantee a quick response. We have a nationwide lawyer in the community for each client organization that makes contact much easier.
Tragedy can come as a shot in the dark and is usually unexpected. We can help a person be ready for what is happening. Living wills and medical powers are both benefits that members can use and their family members will appreciate.
