The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is not just focused on making certain diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get the best possible compensation settlements for this rare form of cancer, they are also extremely focused on making certain the diagnosed victim, and their family, are properly organized to ensure the best possible outcome from a bad situation.
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We found an amazing article in Consumer Reports titled, "Knowing the person's wishes" that is an extremely helpful guide for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or their family members. This is the type of information we want to get out to families and diagnosed victims, so this week we wanted to comment on how the report elaborates on what families should get in place in the event mesothelioma has been diagnosed."
“Know the person's wishes”—From Consumer Reports October 2012:
- Know the location of the will, birth certificate, marriage and divorce certificates, Social Security information, life-insurance policies, financial documents, and keys to safe deposit box or home safe.
- Ask the person’s wishes about funeral arrangements, organ donation, and burial or cremation.
- Have the person complete an advance directive, including a living will, which specifies wanted and unwanted procedures. The person should also appoint a health-care proxy to make medical decisions if he or she becomes incapacitated.
- Have a do-not-resuscitate order drawn up if the person desires. That tells health-care professionals not to perform CPR if the person’s heart or breathing stops and restarting would not result in a meaningful life.
- Make sure the person gives copies of the documents to his or her doctor and a few family members or friends. Take the documents to the hospital if the person is admitted.
