Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Bracelets for Florida

Florida Do Not Resuscitate Bracelets

In most states, a patient wishing not to be resuscitated in the event of heart failure can ask their physician to sign a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order which instructs Emergency Medical personnel to withhold or withdraw CPR. And, in most states, the patient can then wear a metal medical id bracelet that signals Emergency Medical personnel that a DNR order exists. Florida statute 401.45 (3)(c) left it up to the Department of Health, in consultation with the Department of Elderly Affairs and the Agency for Health Care Administration to develop a medical id design that would become the standard for the state. The result was Florida rule 64J-2.018, which stipulates that a patient wishing to wear a DNR identification device is limited to wearing a yellow paper bracelet provided by their doctor.

Many Floridians who have a DNR order and are not institutionalized have voiced to us that they would prefer not to have to wear a yellow paper bracelet out in public, so we've created a metal bracelet alternative that will alert EMS personnel that a DNR order exists, and where it can be found (you'll need to carry a copy of your DNR order in your wallet or purse). There's also room to engrave your name, date of birth, and emergency contact information, if desired. If you have any questions about the Florida statutes, please contact us at 727-823-9500.
