Not in force
29.12. A health or social services professional who provides care to a patient having obtained a diagnosis for a serious and incurable illness leading to incapacity to give consent to care must, when the professional becomes aware of that incapacity, consult the register referred to in section 29.10.
If the register contains an advance request made by the patient, the professional consults the request and files it in the patient’s record, unless the request is already in the record. Furthermore, the professional must ensure that every trusted third person designated in the request has been notified of the onset of the patient’s incapacity.
The professional also informs the health or social services professionals who are members of the care team responsible for the patient of the existence of the request.
