1. Update your health care proxy
A health care proxy is one of the most important legal document a person should have in case they end up hospitalized. This document empowers someone (usually a family member) to make health related decisions on behalf of the patient. However, this document is needed when the patient is unable to communicate his/her decision.
That’s why your proxy, namely the person who will make medical decisions on your behalf should be someone you trust completely. So, getting your health care proxy ready is the best thing you could possibly do, especially now when we are dealing with an unprecedented global pandemic and the uncertain outcomes it brings with it.
