I forget…what did that email say? oh yeah, its at

Elmhurst DNR Forms


HHC has significantly simplified the DNR/DNI process (I know, I can’t believe it either).

Here is the deal:

Pt is making his or her own decisions and wants to be DNR and/or DNI:
Have pt sign a pink DNR form and if he or she wants DNI, a refusal of treat form
this is unchanged

For everything else, including proxy, surrogate, DNR, DNI, withdrawal of care you just need to use one form
It is in the cardiac room form rack or here:
You need to identify the family member who is the proxy or surrogate on the form, but he or she doesn’t need to sign (huge win for pall care).

Email me if you have any questions
