(1) A close friend of the patient who is an adult and reasonably is believed by the health care professional to have a close personal relationship with the patient;

Apparently following the long-standing rule in Florida, the bill requires that a person serving as a decision maker pursuant to the final criteria must be "selected by the provider's bioethics committee and must not be employed by the provider."
"If the provider does not have a bioethics committee, the provider's governing body shall designate a committee of the governing body comprised of at least three members to select the person who shall serve as the decision maker . . . . The person serving as the decision maker must be notified that, upon request, the provider shall make available a second physician, not involved in the patient's care, to assist the person in evaluating treatment options. A decision to withhold or withdraw life-prolonging procedures must be reviewed by the provider's bioethics committee or the committee designated by the provider's governing body pursuant to this subsection. Documentation of efforts to locate a decision maker [in a higher default category] must be recorded in the patient's medical record."
