Submitted by liamharvey on Thu, 03/08/2018 - 07:51

In Florida, where this case happened, Do Not Resuscitate orders are required outside hospitals to be signed by both a physician and the patient. Inside hospitals however, doctors can speak to a patient or the patient’s family and friends to determine the patients wishes. In most states, Do Not Resuscitate orders require either both the patient and doctors signature and may require an attorney on either side to write the order. D.N.R. orders are traditionally written on a yellow paper to make them unmistakable.
