Florida Do Not Resuscitate Order (DNRO) Form and Patient Identification Device

  • The Florida DNRO form is the only form approved in the State of Florida.
  • EMS shall withhold or withdraw cardiopulmonary resuscitation upon the presentation of an original or completed copy of DH Form 1896, Florida Do Not Resuscitate Order Form, or upon the presentation or observation of a Do Not Resuscitate Order patient identification device.
  • The DNRO form should be printed on yellow paper with the words "DO NOT RESUSCITATE ORDER" displayed across the top in black.
  • The patient identification device is a miniature version of DH Form 1896, intended to provide a portable DNRO which travels with the patient, and must be signed by the patient’s physician, the patient, or the patient’s healthcare surrogate or proxy.
  • EMS should verify the identity of the patient through a driver’s license, photo identification, or witness documentation.
  • During each transport, a copy of the DNRO form or the patient identification device must accompany the live patient, and EMS should provide comforting and pain-relieving care.
  • A DNRO may be revoked at any time by the patient or their healthcare surrogate, proxy, or guardian, and oral orders from nonphysician staff members or absent physician requests are not acceptable.
  • Florida will be adopting POLST (Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment Paradigm) in the near future, emphasizing advance care planning conversations and shared decision-making between patients and healthcare professionals.
  • The POLST form assures patients that healthcare professionals will provide only the care they wish to receive and is not for everyone, only for patients with serious illness or frailty.
  • The POLST program is used by several states, and there are other similar forms used by these states, such as Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST), Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment (MOST), and the Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) form.
  • Specific authorities and laws are implemented for the Do Not Resuscitate Order and Determination of Death, with revisions made on December 22, 2021.
  • The document provides detailed instructions and guidelines for EMS providers to follow in honoring DNRO orders and ensuring patient care aligns with the patient's wishes and legal requirements.

  • Sworn officers from law enforcement agencies are encouraged to participate, allowing for mutual aid and greater flexibility in responding to crime scenes.
  • The Fire Chief of the Coral Springs Fire Department established the Dive Team and is ultimately responsible for its actions.

  • An On-Site Supervisor is designated for each dive site, and a Dive Team Shift Coordinator coordinates activities of team divers.
