Witnesses who observe a patient’s verbal consent to an inpatient Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order are no longer required to sign the Acknowledgement and Consent for Do-Not-Resuscitate Order and Modified Codes form or any other documentation. This also applies to Modified DNR codes.
Two witnesses must still observe the patient’s verbal consent to the DNR.
The physician issuing the DNR order must type the two witnesses’ names in the Epic inpatient DNR order set.
The Witnesses Signature form link will no longer display.
