This order form makes your treatment wishes known to health care professionals. It includes many sections, but the only sections that are completed are the ones that identify the decisions you've made regarding your treatment preferences. Every time a physician or nurse practitioner completes a MOLST order form, you will receive a copy for your records. If you do not have a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order on your MOLST form, medics in Maryland must attempt resuscitation. This form does not expire and it goes where you go, to the hospital, rehab, assisted living, and back home. 



 

These consumer training tools were developed by the Maryland MOLST Training Task Force. They may be downloaded and copied for personal use or for training purposes.
