What is DNR (do not return)?
Written by Hannah May
Updated over a week ago

DNR or Do Not Return is an industry-standard in agency staffing. This feature specifically allows facility managers to control who can see, apply, and work their shifts.

When will DNR be used?

DNR is not something to be taken lightly, and facility managers know to use this feature only if there has been a violation, such as:

  • Frequent callouts

  • Short notice callout

  • Arriving late

  • Leaving early

  • Professionalism issues

  • Safety issues

  • Violation of facility policy

What DNR communication does a nurse receive?

If you are DNR’d by a facility, you will receive an email stating that a specific facility has DNR’d you for a specified reason.

If you are DNR’d you will:

  1. Receive an email stating the reason for the DNR

  2. Be removed from upcoming shifts at the facility

  3. Won’t be unable to see any shifts from the facility

Can a nurse be removed from DNR?

Yes! If you find yourself DNR’d by a facility, it is possible to be removed from DNR by the facility.

In the event this happens, ESHYFT will send you an email, notifying you that you have been removed from DNR.

Once removed from DNR, you will again be able to view, apply, and work shifts at that facility.
