Nevada Witnesses and Evidence

Sec. § 49.235
Who may claim privilege.


The privilege may be claimed by the patient, by the patient’s guardian or conservator, or by the personal representative of a deceased patient.


The person who was the doctor may claim the privilege but only on behalf of the patient. The person’s authority so to do is presumed in the absence of evidence to the contrary.
