    DNR means, in my facility which is a rehab/LTC, I'm not going to hook them up to the AED, should they be found not breathing with no pulse.
    It has NOTHING to do with treatment before that point. I would do the same for them as I would for a patient that is full code. Hospice, however is another ball game. DNR does not mean hospice.

    DNR means do not resuscitate, NOT do not treat.
