We outline a model hospital policy that amends existing do-not-resuscitate (DNR) policies to temporarily suspend DNR orders during the perioperative period. The policy amendment is justified because, by accommodating the needs of the DNR patient, the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist, it contributes to the betterment of patient care.
