NC Statutory Requirements: "Advance Directive for the State of North Carolina: A Practical Form for All Adults"
How the simplified form meets North Carolina statutory requirements
The ”Advance Directive for the State of North Carolina: A Practical Form for All Adults” combines the health care power of attorney and the living will into a single document.
Both the Right to a Natural Death Act and the Health Care Power of Attorney statute state explicitly that these two types of advance directive may be combined or incorporated in a single document [at NCGS § 90-321(j) and § 32A-26].
