During ICU rotation in residency, had an AIDs patient dieing from multiorgan system failure. Estranged from his family for years. His partner was there saying this is what the patient's wishes would be. Legally I had to track down the next of kin/family. They did the total opposite of what the partner was saying just for spite.True, the patient could have had a power of attorney written up, etc., etc., etc., but costs $$$ where a marraige license is $20.I can't cite specific examples at the moment, but I have read of various cases where even the power of attorney was disregarded by the courts.
