House Bill 5417, Authorize child Do-Not-Resuscitate orders: Passed 104 to 1 in the House
To allow a parent or guardian to sign a Do-Not-Resuscitate order for a minor child or ward who has an advanced illness, and prescribe related procedures and requirements. DNR orders apply in a setting outside a hospital, and current law does not provide for DNR orders for a minor.
Under the bill the orders would state: "I authorize that in the event the minor child’s heart and breathing should stop, no person shall attempt to resuscitate the minor child. I understand the full import of this order and assume responsibility for its execution."
