    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.

    Oh, and thank you for the compliments toward LTC. I am a new grad and fell into LTC after no luck in applying to acute care. I've been working about 1 month and I LOVE it. I love the mix of med/surg and mental-health nursing it feels like. I feel like I do more for my patients in the LTC setting than I did in the hospital setting.

    And what if she really was too tired? Would you want someone with no sleep working? That just isn't safe.
    If its habitual, then there is a problem, but habitual call-ins happen for a number of different reasons.
