Identifying DNR patients

  • 1.  Identifying DNR patients

    Posted 03-26-2020 01:42 PM

    As we plan for our surge and the likely allocation of scarce resources, we are asking about identifying our (Do-Not-Resuscitate) DNR patients in other ways beyond a patient bracelet and a DNR indicator in our EMR.  We are considering placing a DNR indicator on the patients' doors to reduce PPE consumption and to be more visible for staff. Has anyone thought of a better alternative or solution?   Thank you, Ellen
