That's why a durable medical power of attorney/directive is more powerful. When a living will is in place and is ignored, the court may get involved. The living will clearly expresses the patient's wishes, which makes it more likely the court will abide by those wishes. But, as with all things in life, there's never a 100% guarantee. The medical power is far less easy for anyone to challenge or ignore.Regards..Pixy
