- DOH-5003 MOLST form
- Printing the MOLST form on bright "pulsar" pink, heavy stock paper is strongly encouraged.
- Astrobrights Pulsar Pink 24lb paper is available through Office Depot, Staples, Office Max, and other paper suppliers.
- When EMS personnel respond to an emergency call in the community, they are trained to check whether the patient has a pink MOLST form before initiating life-sustaining treatment. They might not notice a MOLST form on plain white paper.
- However, white MOLST forms and photocopies, faxes, or electronic representations of the original, signed MOLST are legal and valid.
- Spanish version of the MOLST form for educational purposes ONLY.
