A Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Form is a medical document that is signed by doctors and used within medical organizations when it comes to deciding whether a patient needs to have cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or not. The purpose of the document is to inform health care providers not to do CPR for the patient if their heart stops beating.
This type of form can be signed by a doctor at the patient's request. Commonly, patients who suffer from chronic or terminal illnesses, or elderly patients, sometimes request this kind of order to make sure the health care providers won't use CPR on them. Each case has its own specifics, but generally, they choose it due to health reasons, religious reasons, family reasons, etc. A DNR Form template can be downloaded through the link below.
