145C.06 WHEN EFFECTIVE.

A health care directive is effective for a health care decision when:

(1) it meets the requirements of section 145C.03, subdivision 1; and

(2) the principal, in the determination of the attending physician of the principal, lacks decision-making capacity to make the health care decision; or if other conditions for effectiveness otherwise specified by the principal have been met.

A health care directive is not effective for a health care decision when the principal, in the determination of the attending physician of the principal, recovers decision-making capacity; or if other conditions for effectiveness otherwise specified by the principal have been met.
