DNR and Hospice Care



One of the qualifications for hospice is your prognosis and your life limiting expectancy. One of the things we may discuss with you at that time is a do not resuscitate or a DNR order. That can come from your physician or a physician of our own. You do not have to have a, do not resuscitate to be in hospice care, but it is really the objective of hospice care to keep you home, to keep you comfortable, to keep you safe without doing anything aggressive, invasive, or sending you back to the hospital.
