DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR HEALTH CARE (LIVING WILL)
DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR HEALTH CARE
(No court fees)
A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care allows you to appoint a person or persons to make healthcare decisions you if you are unable to do so for any reason. Mapping out the type of medical and non-medical care you would like to receive at some future point should a life-threatening or terminal illness make it impossible for you to express your wishes is a wise decision.
You will also receive a wallet size 'Emergency Medical Notice Advance Directive on File". Listed on the card are your Primary, 1st Alternate and 2nd Alternate agents names and contact information.
If you choose, your Power of Attorney for Health Care will be filed with Living Will Lockbox.com. The Living Will Lockbox is a secure, virtual lockbox where Nevadans can 'file' certain directives such as Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) orders, etc. Designated health care professionals and family members can access these directives when medical treatment decisions must be made.
