Greenlick continued, “It
simply seeks to put a commit-
tee together to modify the
form currently in use to more
accurately reflect the values
of the patient.”
Greenlick mentioned one
particular change that is sug-
gested in the current form that
would cut down on the confu-
sion surrounding some end of
life issues.
“In the current form I can
name someone as my end of

life caregiver and they do not
need to be notified. Part of
this modification would
require that an individual
named as an the executor of
an end of life directive would
need to be notified and agree
to execute the patient’s
desires,” Greenlick said.
The summation of HB 4135
provided on Oregon.gov
states the bill would establish
a committee for the purpose
of adopting a form of
advanced directive to be used
in the state.
It also states the purpose of
the bill is to modify the law
by which an individual is
selected to make healthcare
decisions for another individ-
ual incapable of making
healthcare decisions for them-
selves.
Yelle is supportive of the
need for this particular ele-
ment of HB 4135.

point in my life — or my

death, if you will — that my
wishes, my desire to retain
my dignity while dying, are
compromised by my inability
to convey my wishes. The
changes proposed in this bill
would address that problem,”
he said.
The committee that would
be created by the passage of
HB 4135 would consist of
one member that represents
primary health care pro-
viders, one who represents
hospitals, one medical ethi-
cist, one member who
represents individuals with
disabilities, one from the
state bar with experience
in assisting consumers with
end of life issues and one
that represents the long-term
care community, among
others with related experi-
ence.
Significant
opposition
exists to the passage of HB
4135, primarily organized by
the group Oregon Right to
7 A
Life. Information on the
group’s website suggests that
the changes proposed in the
advance directive law would,
“Endanger patients with
dementia and Alzheimer’s by
putting vulnerable patients
who may not have supportive
advocates at risk of starvation
or dehydration.”
Other groups in support of
HB 4135, including AARP,
believe the bill is a positive
step in clarifying a patient’s
end of life desires, as stated at
last weeks hearing: “As our
society ages, and more of us
need to plan ahead, this
update of Oregon’s Advance
Directives law allows for a
stronger engagement on these
tough issues of when one
lacks capacity to communi-
cate. We urge you to vote yes
on HB 4135.”
