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
