Colorado Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Order Form

Updated July 18, 2023

The Colorado do not resuscitate order form (DNR), also known as a “CPR Directive,” is a document supporting the request made by a Colorado resident stating that they do not wish to receive any resuscitation procedures by a medical professional if they are dying. This form is often requested by people who are weak from sickness or suffering from terminal illnesses. Once approved and signed by a patient’s physician, a DNR will prevent emergency responders and paramedics from resuscitating an individual who is wearing a DNR or CPR Directive indicator on their person.
