In general, residents in licensed residential care facilities will have 911 called even if they have a DNR request, since state law requires the facility to call 911. The only exception for the DNR would be if there is a licensed health care provider in the facility such as a registered nurse, and the patient is receiving hospice services. Although 911 would be called, if the resident has a prehospital Do-Not-Resuscitate form or instructions for no CPR in an Advance Health Care Directive, their desires would be followed if known.
