You can revoke a DNR order at any time. To do this, you must either write of your intention or orally communicate your intention to your physician or other health care professional. If you are at home, you may revoke the DNR by destroying it, but you must still notify your physician of your intention to revoke the DNR. A health care surrogate may also revoke a DNR if he feels that doing so would be in the person’s best interests.
