What Happens if There Is a Conflict Between My Living Will and My Doctor's Obligations?

The physician must tell the patient about any conflicts with the living will as soon as the patient provides a copy of the living will to the physician. Since doctors are ultimately responsible for the health care decisions made in the course of a patient’s treatment, the physician must transfer the patient to the care of another physician if the physician cannot comply with the patient’s living will and the patient isn’t willing modify the living will.
