No Resuscitation orders

Does anyone know what the data says in terms of the % of nursing home residents that have no resuscitation orders in place?

Also, do nursing homes generally have AEDs or not?

DNRs would be considered to be private medical information; there would be no reason to collect or publish that from a public health perspective.

Any Nursing Homes I have visited had AEDs and staff trained to use them.

Don't forget that resusitation only works for heart attacks, not for anything else. There's a big difference between DNR and 'no active treatment' or 'palliative treatment only'.
