What care will ems offer to a patient with a DNR Order?

A DNR Order applies only to CPR. This does not mean that all other care stops. Emergency Medical Services and other health care providers will continue to provide all other appropriate care. If the patient is dying, every effort will be made to make the patient as comfortable as possible, such as measures to stop pain or ease breathing. If the patient requires transportation or treatment other than CPR, Emergency Medical Services will provide such services.
