Caring for our community one patient at a time since 1985

We are often contacted with questions regarding Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Orders. Indiana State Law has provisions in it to accommodate certain persons who wish to not be resuscitated in the event of a cardiac arrest. Currently, EMS in Indiana may not accept Living Wills or other such documents meant to convey a wish not to be resuscitated.

We strive to accommodate the wishes of our patients and their families to the fullest extent legally possible. With that in mind we have provided the following links. If you have any questions about how this law applies to you, please seek the advice of an attorney. If you have any questions about your medical condition and how it applies to this law, please consult your physician.

If, after discussing this with the appropriate legal and healthcare professionals, you decide to execute a Do Not Resuscitate Order, please keep the following in mind.

  • Make sure that your family or caregiver is aware of your decision and of the existence of the DNR Form.
  • Make sure that you keep the form with you in a place where it is easy to find. Remember, we can't honor your wish without having the form in our possession.
  • Make sure the form is protected from damage. We also cannot accept DNR Forms that are illegible or damaged severely.
  • Remember, this is the only DNR Form that our EMTs and paramedics can accept.
  • If you are a resident of a licensed healthcare facility this law does not apply to you. Please speak with the appropriate person at your facility about an Advance Directive.
