Do Not Resuscitate Orders

Taxonomy Code: FT-2700.0500-150

Legal forms that people who have life-threatening medical conditions can obtain which instruct emergency personnel to take no action should their vital functions cease. If the individual is personally incapable of requesting the form, DNR orders can be issued by a physician if the individual has signed a living will or other directive, and can be requested by the individual's legally authorized representative, guardian and/or qualified relatives, usually the person's spouse and children. Bracelets, necklaces or other devices that patients may use to confirm the existence of a DNR order may also be available. DNR orders are governed by state law, and, where legal, are recognized by all hospitals and may be recognized in specified out-of-hospital settings, e.g., by EMT personnel responding to a medical emergency.
