Maine Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Order Form

Updated July 19, 2023

The Maine do not resuscitate (DNR or DNAR) order form is a document which doctors provide to patients who do not want to be resuscitated in the event that their breathing or heartbeat stops. Once the patient has filled out the document and both they and the doctor have signed the order, it will be added to their medical record. Such an order may also be requested when a patient is admitted to a hospital. A DNR Order must be honored by all medical personnel and exempts said personnel from any litigation for not administering life-saving procedures.
