CANHR v. Chapman – Judgment on Decision Making for Unbefriended Has Been Appealed

Last month, I wrote how the Alameda County Superior Court struck down the California statute that authorizes an intramural mechanism for making medical treatment decisions for incapacitated patients without surrogates.

Since then, many California clinicians have exclaimed how that decision will have catastrophic effects on care and treatment.  

So, it is appropriate that this case with such momentous consequences is now going up to the California Court of Appeal.
