South Dakota Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Order Form

Updated July 19, 2023

The South Dakota do not resuscitate (DNR) order form instructs emergency medical personnel to withhold the administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a patient whose heart or breathing has stopped. This type of medical order is often requested by individuals who would prefer to die naturally and avoid the suffering of resuscitative treatments. The DNR form or bracelet must be present at the time of an emergency or else the attending medical staff will be required to resuscitate the individual. Therefore, the DNR order/bracelet should be kept close to the individual and made easily accessible.

Laws – ARSD 44:05:06 and SDCL 34-12F

Required to Sign – MD/PA/NP, and patient.
