The "medical power of attorney" is a legal document that states what your wishes should be should you become incapacitated. Usually a trusted family member or friend will be named to conduct your medical decisions according to your desires in these unfortunate circumstances.
In this document you provide an "agent" (someone you designate) to make financial decisions for you in the event that you are incapacitated and medically unable to make these decisions. Obviously the bills need to be paid as well as other financial activity and this document provides the means to accomplish what needs to be done.
