Free Travel       More Absolutely Florida


  Just in Case...
The Medical Power of Attorney

This little form can save you a trip full of anguish, should the unthinkable happen while traveling in Florida or elsewhere

If you're an unmarried him/her, him/him or her/her combination planning an extended trip to Florida (among other places) you might want to carry along a Medical Power of Attorney....just in case. If you or your traveling partner are injured, just flash this document and one will have the power to speak on the other's behalf. Hospitals won't allow you (an unrelated friend or companion) to participate in the what treatments are necessary and who can do what, so a Medical Power of Attorney like this can solve that problem. To save you the $50 attorney's fee, we've reproduced the document below. Print it out two copies of this page (one for you, one for them), fill in the names, an expiration date and have the document notarized.
