The Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney:
Your First Line of Defense Against Medical Tyranny
The medical community is morphing into a cult of tyranny that has no relation to science. It’s only taken a few months for the transition to happen. You hear medical frontline personnel shake their heads and say, “Last year we were heroes, this year, we’re fired.” With new mandates coming as soon as each day folds back on the calendar, you might wonder how you can protect yourself from medicos who insist you vaccinate, take your “boosters” and wear a stifling mask. They are very likely to refuse service to you in the ER or clinics simply because you are not vaccinated or do not wish to be tested for Covid-19 because you don’t want a swab shoved up your nasal passage (believe me, it hurts), before you have a procedure done.
On October, 14, 2021, a story aired on WSB-TV (Atlanta, GA) about a man discharged from the hospital, Piedmont Healthcare, in Conyers, GA, just outside of Atlanta. The patient was discharged because his Medicaid ran out, so the doctors said he was good to go, even though he was suffering from “sepsis, a high heart rate, fever, a urinary tract infection, and a possible bladder infection,” according to the EMS report. Security was summoned to get him dressed and put him out on the sidewalk. A passerby noticed the ex-patient lying unconscious on the sidewalk in front of the hospital and noted he had “tubes” still hanging from his body. The passerby called police, who, in turn called EMS. The passerby became the defacto patient advocate. The patient ended right back in the Piedmont ER.
Don’t let this happen to you. The time has come where we need to protect ourselves from this kind of inhumane behavior on the part of huge, “for profit” medical conglomerates.
There is a way to protect yourself-create what are commonly known as Health Care Directives and Power of Attorney forms. The former protects you from unwanted, often invasive procedures. The latter allows a designated individual to act on your behalf and become a “patient advocate” for you. Large healthcare conglomerates don’t want to deal with huge lawsuits. These forms are legal warnings that you will do just that. It erases “implied consent” should you present to the ER in an unconscious state and the prudent practitioner follows your choices and your rights, to the letter.

Health Care Directives and Power of Attorney are important documents to have in case you need emergency care. It puts you in control of your health by clearly stating what you do or do not want done. It allows someone you trust to follow through with those wishes in case you are unable to speak for yourself. You can get the forms free and only need to have two witnesses and a notary. You can add additional information, for example, “no Covid test or Covid vaccination”.
Here are two locations where you can get free forms on the internet. Contact your physician or health care provider if you need assistance. You can also contact me for assistance; Victor will give you my email address on request.
