Question: Are we allowed to accept photocopied DNR? I have heard several discrepancies on this question.


 Yes, you are allowed to accept a photocopied DNR, as long as it is a photocopy of a valid DNR: with all required fields completed prior to the copy being made.  For full details on the mandatory completed fields please see the DNR standard bulletin on our website:

For further reference, see the webinar by ACP Justin Lammers and Medical Director Paul Bradford on the SWORBHP website:
