Do-Not-Resuscitate Orders: Updates and Changes
For years, in-hospital do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders have not been subject to state-mandated requirements. Now a new law, Senate Bill 11 passed by the 85th Texas Legislature, provides a framework that regulates in-facility DNR orders. But the bill’s language leaves some issues murky; physicians who treat end-of-life patients in a hospital must take note of the law’s host of criteria for what else can constitute a valid DNR. And the emotions involved likely never will get any easier.
This webinar summarizes the requirements under the new law relating to in-facility DNR orders. Best Bits
- The difference between DNR orders and other advance directives,
- What makes a DRN order valid,
- Disagreement with a DNR order, and
- Liability and risk.
