If you are distributing blank OOH DNR forms to be filled out by patients, family and doctors, the blank form MUST include the OOH DNR form on one side and the instructions on the other side. In the instructions, there is some information required by law that must be made available to the patient, family, witnesses and doctors before the form is signed.
Emergency medical services personnel can honor an OOH DNR form that appears to have been properly executed, even if the instructions are not on the opposite side.
NOTE: The newly revised form is now available. The older TDH Standard OOH form (revised May 17, 2000) is still a valid form and can still be honored by healthcare professionals if it has already been executed.
