DNR Do Not Resusitate Order

The next piece of paper you may need is a Do Not Resusitate Order or Guide. It goes by many other names like DNR.

It instructs hospitals and EMTs to not perform life-saving procedures if your loved one does not want it. In the case of my mother, she has already experienced several strokes and wishes not to survive a big one.

We were told that in our state it’s best to print it on orange paper.

We needed a witness and doctor to sign though at intake at the assisted living facility, just the witness at the time was fine.

Rocket lawyer has this form called a guide and mentions that it goes by various names. You have the ability to choose your state:
