Best Answer

The estate of the deceased to the extent that non exempt assets are available to pay debts owed. Surviving family members are not responsible for the debts of a deceased if they did not hold joint accounts with the person. Nor are they legally responsible for medical bills unless they signed a contract agreeing to do so. Admitting an adult (not a minor) to a hospital or care facility does not confer financial obligation upon the non patient signer. If the admittance documents indicate otherwise the person who presents the forms to be signed must inform the involved parties of that fact before allowing them to sign.
