While most legislatures are just getting ready to start a new session, this week, the Governor of Michigan signed three prior session bills into law. The new statutes allow parents and guardians to execute a Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) order on behalf of a minor child.
The new laws, which take effect on March 23, 2021, also establish protocols for filing with the child’s school a DNR order, POST form, revocation of a DNR order, or modification or revocation of a POST form. The statutes provide civil and criminal immunity for schools and school personnel who comply with a DNR order or POST form.
