MOLST (Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment)

The MOLST form is a bright pink medical order form signed by a New York State licensed physician that communicates patient wishes regarding life-sustaining treatment to health care providers. The form includes medical orders and patient preferences regarding:

  • CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
  • Intubation and mechanical ventilation
  • Artificial hydration and nutrition
  • Future hospitalization and transfer
  • Antibiotics

The MOLST provides a single document that functions as an actionable medical order and can transition with a patient through all health care settings. It is intended that the form will be transported with the patient between different health care settings in order that their wishes for life-sustaining treatment and CPR will be clearly indicated. Although legal in all part of NYS, it presently is used only in parts of upstate NY.
