Nevada Public Health and Safety
Sec. § 451.558
Manner of making anatomical gift before death of donor.


1.

A donor may make an anatomical gift:

(a)

By authorizing a statement or symbol indicating that the donor has made an anatomical gift to be imprinted on the donors drivers license or identification card;

(b)

In a will;

(c)

During a terminal illness or injury of the donor, by any form of communication addressed to at least two adults, at least one of whom is a disinterested witness; or

(d)

As provided in subsection 2.

2.

A donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under NRS 451.556 may make a gift by a donor card or other record signed by the donor or other person making the gift or by authorizing that a statement or symbol indicating that the donor has made an anatomical gift be included on a donor registry. If the donor or other person is physically unable to sign a record, the record may be signed by another natural person at the direction of the donor or other person and must:

(a)

Be witnessed by at least two adults, at least one of whom is a disinterested witness, who have signed at the request of the donor or the other person; and

(b)

State that it has been signed and witnessed as provided in paragraph (a).

3.

An anatomical gift made in the manner described in paragraph (a) of subsection 1 by a donor who is at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age is valid and may not be revoked by a parent or guardian if the donor and his or her parent or guardian sign a form prescribed by the Department of Motor Vehicles which indicates that unless the anatomical gift is amended or revoked by the donor before his or her death, the anatomical gift may not be amended or revoked by the parent or guardian of the donor.

4.

Revocation, suspension, expiration or cancellation of a drivers license or identification card upon which an anatomical gift is indicated does not invalidate the gift.

5.

An anatomical gift made by will takes effect upon the donors death whether or not the will is probated. Invalidation of the will after the donors death does not invalidate the gift.
