Georgia Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Order Form

Updated July 18, 2023

The Georgia do not resuscitate (DNR) order form is a document requested by an individual who does not wish to have any resuscitation procedures performed on them in the event of cardiac or respiratory arrest. This form is reserved for patients who have a medical condition which, upon the use of CPR or other resuscitation procedures, would result in imminent death. Furthermore, patients who are in a noncognitive state with no reasonable possibility of regaining said cognitive functions and patients for whom CPR would be futile would also be appropriate candidates for a DNR. In the event that a patient is unable to make decisions for themselves (e.g., incompetent or in a noncognitive state), an authorized representative can make a DNR request on their behalf. In all cases, the patient’s physician will be the one to complete and sign the DNR form. Individuals who are no longer hospitalized, but wish to wear a DNR identifier (bracelet), can ask their physician to complete this request for them (see instructions below)
