(A) The appendix to this rule shall constitute the do-not-resuscitate protocol for the state of Ohio.
(B) Under the protocol, a person can be a "DNR Comfort Care" patient or a "DNR Comfort Care - Arrest" patient. For a "DNR Comfort Care" patient, the DNR protocol is activated when a DNR order is issued or when a declaration that includes a directive that the declarant not receive CPR becomes effective under section 2133.03 of the Revised Code. For a "DNR Comfort Care - Arrest" patient, the DNR protocol is activated when the patient experiences cardiac or respiratory arrest.
(C) A "DNR Comfort Care - Arrest" patient is identified by the appropriate indication on the patient's DNR identification, as specified in rule 3701-62-04 of the Administrative Code, or if the patient does not have DNR identification, by a statement in the DNR order that the event of a cardiac arrest or a respiratory arrest, the patient is not to receive CPR.
