For durable powers of attorney for health care decisions, Nevada now requires a “certification of competency” for principals who live in certain medical facilities (such as a hospital, residential facility for groups, facility for skilled nursing or home for individual residential care) at the time of the execution of the power of attorney. (See 2013 Nevada Laws Ch. 224.)
