She has no family but does have a living will that states, “do not resuscitate,” so her primary provider wrote “DNR, palliative care only” orders in her chart this morning. The nurses are giving her palliative care, but there is some confusion on that that means between the nursing staff. What is palliative care and what is included in it?  If a client has DNR orders, does that mean stop everything? Why or why not? Health Science Science Nursing NURSING 101 Share Question
