Designation — Authority — Effect of acts done — Appointment of guardian, effect — Accounting — Reliance on instrument

A person may authorize their attorney-in-fact to provide informed consent for health care decisions. If a person has executed a mental health directive with the result that multiple agents have authority to make mental health decisions on their behalf and such authority conflicts, then the most recently appointed agent will have authority unless the directive solves the conflict.
