When you call 911 or are taken to an emergency room, they assume you want all treatment available. But some people don't, they have serious illness and don't want everything. They get put on machines and then their loved ones have to make hard decisions that could have been avoided.
On one piece of paper, NETO provides orders for EMS to use in the field, then gives your doctors at the hospital the input they need to to guide your care so you get all the treatment you want and need and none that you don't.
Because NETO makes use of two existing tools, physician orders and patient declarations, most organizations can use it as-is. They just need to learn about it so they can see how it fits in thier systems. For EMS, it provides physician orders for resuscitation; for doctors, it provide the patient's clear, timely directives for limiting treatment.
