The Nevada health care power of attorney is a legal document used by the grantor to authorize the attorney-in-fact to make decisions about his/her health care matters.
WHAT is a Healthcare Power of Attorney
▪A Healthcare Power of Attorney is a docu-
ment that allows you to choose a person
(an "Agent") who will have the authority to
make healthcare decisions for you if you
are unconscious, mentally incompetent, or
otherwise unable to make such decisions.
▪In Nevada you can also communicate your
wishes regarding whether you wish to re-
ceive "life-sustaining procedures" (to be
kept alive) if you become permanently co-
matose or terminally ill, in the Healthcare
Power of Attorney document. This will help
your Agent to know your wishes as he or
she makes decisions for you. Even if you
do include this in the document, you should
still discuss the Healthcare Power of Attor-
ney with your Agent, expressing your
wishes regarding what you want to happen
to you regarding healthcare.
WHAT is a Durable Power of Attorney
▪Durable means that the document will re-
main in effect or take effect if you become
mentally incompetent. You can also sign a
durable power of attorney document to
prepare for the possibility that you may
become mentally incompetent due to ill-
ness or an accident. In this case, you
would specify that the power of attorney
wouldn't go into effect unless a doctor certi-
fies that you are mentally incapacitated.
▪The power of attorney will remain in effect
indefinitely or you can specify in it a date
for it to end. You can also end it by com-
pleting a new Healthcare Power of Attorney
or simply telling your Agent or doctor that
you no longer wish it to be in effect.
WHAT is the Difference Between a POA and a Liv-
▪A Healthcare Power of Attorney is different from a
Living Will because it allows you to choose someone
to make healthcare decisions for you. A Living Will
only allows you to communicate your wishes con-
cerning life-sustaining procedures.
IS the POA an Advanced Heath Care Directive
▪Both Living Wills and Healthcare Powers of Attorney
are considered "Advance Healthcare Directives"
because you're giving instructions on what you'd
want to happen in the event that you become unable
to make healthcare decisions in the future.
▪Nevada also has a specific "Advance Healthcare
Directive" document that combines elements of a
Healthcare Power of Attorney and a Living Will. (For

tives, Healthcare Powers of Attorney and Living
Wills, link to:
