West Virginia Medical Power of Attorney Form

The West Virginia medical power of attorney form is a legal document that would be completed by a Principal, authorizing powers to an Agent of their choice, to make health care decisions on their behalf, once the Principal is no longer able to direct their own health care. Once the health of the Principal has diminished to this point, the Agent will be responsible to apply the health care directives as strictly as possible, to the wishes of the Principal. This document may be revoked should the Principal wish to do so, whenever they wish. This document must be witnessed, before it will be effective.
