(755 ILCS 35/7)
(from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 707)
The desires of a qualified patient shall at all
times supersede the effect of the declaration.
A physician or other health-care provider may presume, in the
absence of knowledge to the contrary, that a declaration complies
with this Act and is valid.
No physician, health care provider or employee thereof who in good faith
and pursuant to reasonable medical standards causes or participates in the
withholding or withdrawing of death delaying
procedures from a qualified patient pursuant to a declaration which purports
to have been made in accordance with this Act shall as a result thereof,
be subject to criminal or civil liability, or be found to have committed
an act of unprofessional conduct.
