§ 2512. Legislative intent
It is the intent of the General Assembly to provide a mechanism similar to a power of attorney whereby parents may confer the power to consent to medical and mental health treatment of their children upon a relative or family friend in order to enable those who are temporarily unable to care for the needs of their children to ensure that the medical and mental health needs of the children are met without terminating or limiting in any way the legal rights of the parents.
