A Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment  (POLST) is a medical order that states what kind of medical treatment patients want toward the end of their lives.

A Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment  (POLST) is a medical order that states what kind of medical treatment patients want toward the end of their lives. The form is printed on bright pink paper and signed by both a doctor and patient, POLST helps give seriously ill patients more control over their end-of-life care. Through a conversation between the patient and health care provider, patient wishes are translated to actionable medical orders. Additionally, the POLST program coordinates efforts between health care setting to assure POLST medical orders are transferred with the patient and, very importantly, unlike an Advance Directive, emergency medical services are able to honor the directives on the POLST. POLST forms may only be ordered by health care providers. Individuals seeking to obtain a POLST form should speak to their physician. Health care providers: click here to order Nevada POLST forms.
