Full Code DNR DNI DNORegister Today!
- by AggieNurse99 Aug 11, '12I feel really silly but about 6 months ago we changed our charting and now have to select code status for pts. I've asked and asked and asked collegues, MDs, and education but what is a DNO? Not quite gotten a straight answer, but is it do-not-operate?
