Question: In long term care in Texas it has been my understanding that all patients are Full Code unless there are signed doctors orders listing them as DNR and an out of hospital DNR signed by the doctor. Now the corporation I am working for is telling me I must write orders for full code. I was always under the understanding if there is no DNR in the chart they are presumed Full Code. Can anyone clarify this? Is there a new state regulation or somewhere I can find out?
