Abstract:     
Mentally competent adult individuals are entitled to make their own decisions. In the event of illness, incapacity, or other misfortune, however, an individual’s ability to make decisions may be impaired. Someone else must act as a substitute decisionmaker. The proper vehicle for identifying that substitute decisionmaker, as well as the scope of his or her authority, is the focus of this article. Inappropriate and unnecessary usurpation of personal decisionmaking power must be avoided and should not be tolerated.
