A Nevada advance directive is a document that allows a person to create a power of attorney for health care and declare a living will. The document lets an agent be designated to make health care decisions on behalf of someone else and to outline their preferred treatment options. An advance directive must be signed with at least two (2) witnesses or a notary public. After completing, it may only be used when the patient becomes incapacitated or not able to make clear decisions for themselves.
