policy 0079 : Resuscitative (Code) Status Orders

A Patient (or authorized surrogate) has the right to agree to or refuse offered resuscitative interventions or other life-sustaining treatments. The Health Care Team should not offer or provide interventions that are outside the boundaries of accepted clinical practice. Patients (or their authorized surrogates) will be involved in decision making regarding all aspects of their care, including the decision whether to forgo (withhold or withdraw) resuscitative interventions or other life-sustaining treatments.
