Question: When the Ministry of Health's DNR forms are filled out, can the section where the patient's name goes have a sticker from the hospital with the patients name/health card #/DOB, etc. instead of having the name printed or does that make the form invalid. The form specifically states the patients name should be printed clearly. I wasn't sure if the ID sticker was something we could accept instead or if that section can only be filled out by hand.


A sticker is acceptable. The essential part in the instructions is that the patient name be clearly printed on the DNR form.
