Form F-00060, Declaration to Physicians (Wisconsin Living Will) - sometimes confused with an Advance Directive - is a crucial document for patients looking for more control over the medical treatment they would want in the event of incapacitation. The form was released by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services on August 1, 2016, and can be downloaded through the link below.
With a signed and legal will with all wishes clearly stated, the patient can make pre-plan all procedures regarding palliative care, life support, and life-sustaining treatment. The paperwork should be given careful thought and be talked about with the patient's family, physician, and health care providers since they will be tasked with implementing the specified wishes and procedures.
A Wisconsin Living Will is defined by the Wisconsin Statutes on Health (Ch. 140 to 162). The will must be signed by two (2) witnesses. The document is not valid if the patient is pregnant.
