Medical Power of Attorney Nevada Form – Adobe PDF
The Nevada medical power of attorney form is a document executed by an individual with the intent of handing over the authority to another person in regard to important health care decisions for the principal (usually a spouse, relative, or close friend). The appointed attorney-in-fact will have the power to accept or deny medical treatments and/or operations should the principal become incapacitated. Before executing this document, the principal should talk to a health care professional so they can get a better idea of their present mental and physical condition. A conversation with the proposed attorney-in-fact would be wise too so that both parties are on the same page with regard to values and expectations. The document also contains options regarding life-prolonging treatment and artificial nutrition/hydration so that the principal can authorize certain actions ahead of time.
