An Ohio living will is a document that outlines the principal’s health care preferences in the event that they become incapable of making their own informed decisions. A living will only becomes effective once the physician attending to the principal determines that they are terminally ill or in a permanently unconscious state. Subsequent to this determination, the physician will reference the living will to decide whether to withhold or administer life-sustaining treatments.

Commonly accompanied by a living will is a Medical Power of Attorney, which appoints a health care agent to communicate with health care provider’s on the principal’s behalf; together these forms create an Ohio Advance Directive.
