Delaware Passes POLST Bill (DMOST)

Yesterday, the Delaware Senate passed H.B. 64, which the House passed at the end of March. Once signed by the governor, this will add a new title 25A to title 16 of the Delaware Code:  “Delaware Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment Act” (DMOST Act).”

Getting a legal status for POLST in Delaware has been a long a bumpy road.  I review some of that here.

This summer, I will be assessing this and other new POLST and surrogate decision making statutes for the 2016 supplement to the RIGHT TO DIE legal reference treatise.
