A Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order is a legal document signed by a medical provider when an individual decides that they do not want CPR, also known as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or any other attempt at life-prolonging measures in the event that their heart stops beating.
The choice to have a Do Not Resuscitate order in place does NOT mean you will not be cared for, or that your comfort needs will not be met. It only means you will not receive CPR when your heart stops beating.
Please note: This document must be the original goldenrod colored document. Photocopies will not be honored.
If you have questions about a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order, you can reach out to your healthcare provider or contact a member of your care team.
