Alert Band | DNR

Typenex® Medical DNR Bands alert caregivers that a patient has provided an end-of-life directive. When a caregiver sees the purple band, they know to check the patient’s chart for further information.

Information About DNR Alert Bands

The DNR Alert Band clearly identifies the patients who have a “do not resuscitate” order. The band is purple, the standard color for DNR Alerts in most states. The standard-colored band minimizes confusion and error for caregivers.


Our DNR Alert Bands help you ensure patient safety with:

  • A snap closure that is simple to secure.
  • Large letters so caregivers can easily read them.
  • An easily expandable option with the Typenex Medical R3™ band

DNR orders are important to recognize, and Typenex Medical Alert Bands make that process easy.
