I had a conversation with a potential client last week regarding the issue of Advanced Directives. Specifically, the potential client was telling me that he can make his intentions known through his Will, so my services would not be needed. As much as I tried to explain that it does not quite work like that, the potential client would not accept the reality of the situation.
Then the Miami Hospital staff was confronted with a very unique circumstance when someone had tattooed their intentions on their chest!! Unfortunately that is NOT the proper method of having Advanced Directives, and thus the hospital staff did not abide by the tattooed request. Please, see an attorney to have your Advanced Directives.
