On Friday, May 30, SB 3076 Passed both houses, and now awaits the governor’s signature. Once a law, the IDPH has until January 1, 2015 to release the revised form. The revisions will include changing the form’s title to “IDPH Uniform DNR/Practitioner Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment”. In addition to attending physicians, APN’s, PA’s and some physician residents will be able to sign the orders.
