Summary:
Emergency Medical Services Do Not Resuscitate (EMSDNR) Orders. Authorizes licensed hospital personnel, when acting within their scope of practice, to honor EMSDNR orders for 24 hours after admission. Presently, only EMS pre-hospital personnel and hospital emergency department health care providers are authorized to honor EMSDNR orders. After hospital admission, however, the EMSDNR orders have no effect; therefore, a new order must be written--a process which usually takes some hours. This bill provides time to bridge this hiatus between emergency room or EMS transport and the writing of a hospital Do Not Resuscitate order.
