When Quality Care Counts

Enduring Powers of Attorney or EPOA for short. With the recent newspaper article and investigation going on it is worth looking into this.

What follows is my understanding of what is required.

If a resident does not have the capacity to make a decision and has an EPOA then this must be legally activated and the facility must receive a copy of this activation (it is not enough to just have the EPOA paperwork it must be activated) prior to the admission or accepting resident for admission.

If a resident does not have the capacity to make a decision and does NOT have an EPOA then facilities must insist on one being applied for through the family courts (PPPr) and family will have to wait for it to be done which can take some months. You should not accept the admission until it is through.

If a resident has the capacity to make decisions then ask that they sign admission agreement and all other paperwork themselves – if unable due to physical capacity they must be present when such paperwork is signed and have a witness to say they were in agreement.

Only the resident and/or Doctor (acting in the resident’s best interests) can sign the Resus orders never relatives or EPOA.

This means that everybody should relook at their practice to ensure that residents are not placed against their wishes.

Thought for today:

'Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle'
