Full Code   DNR   DNI  DNO Full Code DNR DNI DNO | allnurses


  1. 0 I 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?

    Do Not Operate is all I can think of. Maybe if they come in with a nasty trauma they dont want surgery. Or if they have a hip fx no pinning. Thats odd I have never heard of it either.

    Who made up the form??? I'd go to them. Also medical records for abbreviations or social services as they get forms signed. And the admissions registrar asks about advanced directives/living wills etc when pts sign in, so they might know.

    I would think it is Do Not Operate, but I would ask your supervisor.
