Practitioners should be certain that clients are aware of legal, tax, financial and other implications should they choose to react to them. Living wills and DNRs may be crucial to review now. Standard forms may contain language prohibiting intubation under all circumstances. If you contract coronavirus, it is possible that you would need to be intubated to survive. If you or a client have a DNR or living will stating that you do not want to be intubated, not revising those documents could result in the tragic denial of care that you need to survive.
If a client's will and other documents are dangerously outdated and don't reflect current wishes, it may be critical at the present time.
The stock market has been adversely impacted, businesses are closing, and more. Clients might need to review revenue sources, expenditures, retirement plans, estate plans, financial models, business succession plans, and much more.
