“Advance directives and do not resuscitate orders (DNRO) under the Department of Elder Affairs regulations”

Each hospice must not condition treatment or admission upon whether or not the patient has executed or waived an advance directive. Each hospice patient must be provided with information on health care advance directives at the time of admission. If a patient has an executed advance directive, the advance directive must be included in the patient’s medical record.

A hospice may withhold or withdraw cardiopulmonary resuscitation from a patient if the patient executed a Do Not Resuscitate Order. An absence of an order not to resuscitate does not preclude a physician from withholding or withdrawing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
