FAQ´s

 

What is an "MEDICAL POA?

In Ecuador, the article 15 of the Code of Medical Ethics in Ecuador states: “The Doctor / Practitioner will not make any surgical intervention without previous authorization from the patient if the patient cannot authorize it by itself, so it should be authorized by its representative or family member unless this involves the patient´s life under risk in a short period of time. In all cases, the authorization must include the following information: type of intervention, the risks, and the possible complications.”

 

The National Court of Justice of Ecuador (Ecuadorian Supreme Court), in reference to the article 15 of the code of medical ethics of Ecuador is pronounced in the following way: “This obligation if in abstract reference towards each professional´s duties, whether they are a medic, attorney, architect, so in the event of non-compliance with this duty, the right of every citizen to demand it arises, in other words, receive the informed consent that translates into the obligation, for example, of doctors to inform the patient in a timely manner about their state of health, the risks, and that they can opt for the treatment that is convenient for them. The existence of responsibility arises when a duty is infringed. The articles 52 and 54 of the Constitution grant the citizens the right to demand an optimal quality of any service delivery and the possibility to file a claim in the event of damage and the right to reparation by means of compensation due to the affectation suffered by deficiencies or damages, unless there had been the consequence of a fortuitous event or force majeure, only in this case there would be no responsibility.

How is the Medical POA granted?

The Principal must sign in accordance with the Ecuadorian Notary Law, in front of a public notary, if the grantor is not fluent in Spanish an interpreter must be nominated to sign along with the principal.

 

After this has been legally authorized the document becomes valid to be used. The Principal must be thinking freely during the creation of the Medical Power of Attorney.

The Agent should carry a certified copy issued by the public notary of the Medical Power of Attorney and will most likely need to present it during every occurrence. It is recommended to give a copy of this form to your primary care physician.
