Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney with Just Answer. I'll be here to help today! Do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?

By the way, the system will automatically ask for a phone call. By no means are you required to accept it.

The answer to your question is yes. The easiest way to do this is to create a power of attorney in someone that you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf. A POA is very simple and if you click here, you can find a book on how to get a POA set up. This way, your daughter will not be able to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated as the POA is bulletproof
