DNR Rules & Regulations
You have likely heard of a DNR, but what is it?
A do not resuscitate (DNR) order states that you do not want healthcare providers to perform CPR in case you go into cardiac arrest. CPR and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) will be withheld if you have a valid written “DNR” order on you (Note: the written and physician signed order must be present). Some doctors won’t perform chest compressions but will provide advanced care such as mechanical ventilation.
DNR orders must come from a physician. If you’d like CPR to be withheld; you (or a health care power of attorney) need to talk to your doctor for a written order.
Paramedics and EMT’s are usually allowed to follow a written DNR request, though each state has different rules, and there can be different municipalities within them. Many states have standardized legal forms for DNR orders. If you don’t have a form in that state, your wishes may not be honored.

Persons requesting DNR jewelry should first complete a DNR Order Form, which must be signed by their physician.
If you live in Virginia, the words “Virginia-Do Not Resuscitate” must be engraved on your medical alert jewelry. You also need your name, doctors name and phone number, and the date the DNR form was issued.
Once you’ve executed a DNR Order with your physician, you can place your order with us. You must send us a copy of the OOH DNR Order signed by your physician.
