J.18 Do Not Resuscitate Orders - April 2001 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in November 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

The policy of the Albuquerque Public Schools is to provide all students with immediate first aid and Emergency Rescue Services when a medical crisis or life-threatening episode occurs at school. However, if the attending physician of a student has written a Do Not Resuscitate Order (DNR) on the authorization of the child's parent(s)/guardian(s), school personnel must act in accordance with the order and refrain from medical interventions that are not consistent with the order.
