End-of-life decisions, among them the DNR (do-not-resuscitate)

order, are a significant part of contemporary medical practice.

Nurses who are responsible for patients with a DNR order are often

excluded from participation in the DNR decision, yet may be

required to provide care at the time of DNR implementation. If the

nurse has no input in the decision to initiate or not to initiate

resuscitation should a cardiac arrest occur, it is unclear what

this exclusion does to the nurse as a person, as a professional and

as a patient advocate. Grounded theory methodology was used to

analyze the interviews of 77 hospital-based nurses. The nurse

accommodated to the decision by the process of involvement or

non-involvement and this accommodation is presented in a conceptual

model. Descriptive statistics are presented to illuminate the

categories and model. Recommendations are provided regarding

resources which nursing service, administration and education could

utilize to assist the hospital-based nurse in the DNR situation.



This study should effect more knowledgeable patient care to the

degree that it improves the nurse's understanding of the DNR

decision and process and her role vis a' vis the patient and

physician.
