Crisis Standards of Care

Has a statewide Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order been issued in Idaho?

The guidance for universal DNR is a strategy for hospitals to consider when operating under crisis standards of care AND the demand for ventilators is more than the number of ventilators available. Universal DNR, if enacted by a hospital, would apply to all hospitalized adult patients in the event of a cardiac arrest; it would not apply to pediatric patients. This guidance can be considered when resources are extremely scarce or unavailable as a way to save the most lives for patients with the best prognosis for survival, since the likelihood of survival after a cardiac arrest is low for adult patients.
