A Wisconsin living will is a form used to declare certain desires and choices with regard to life-prolonging treatments. A living will must be created when a person is of sound mind and will only be enforced when the principal is no longer capable of making decisions for themselves. It is the duty of all medical staff to refer to a living will, if one exists, when dealing with incapacitated patients to ensure they are administering treatments to the patient’s preferences. This form should be kept in a safe place with copies distributed to family members, health care providers, and any other pertinent individuals.
