Life Sustaining Statute, Nevada

Directive to Physicians as Provided by Nevada Revised Statutes, Section 449.610



Date __________________


I, _______________, being of sound mind, intentionally and voluntarily declare:

1.  If at any time I should have an incurable injury, disease, or illness certified to be a terminal condition by two physicians, and where the application of life-sustaining procedures would serve only to artificially prolong the moment of my death and where my physician determines that my death is imminent whether or not life-sustaining procedures are utilized, I direct that such procedures be withheld or withdrawn, and that I be permitted to die naturally,

2.  It is my intention that this directive shall be honored  by my family and attending physician as the final expression of my legal right to refuse medical or surgical treatment and accept the consequences from such refusal.

3.  If I have been diagnosed as pregnant and that fact is known to my physician, this directive shall have no force or effect during the course of my pregnancy. I understand the full import of this directive and I am emotionally and mentally competent to execute it.
