In the Original Article by Dzeng et al titled “Influence of Institutional Culture and Policies on Do-Not-Resuscitate Decision Making at the End of Life,” published online April 6, 2015, in JAMA Intern Med (doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2015.0295), there was an error in the third sentence of the third paragraph of the Introduction section. The sentence should read as follows: “Some have argued that do-not-resuscitate (DNR) decisions should be tailored to 3 distinct patient populations: (1) those whom CPR should be considered a plausible option, (2) those whom CPR should be recommended against, or (3) those whom CPR should not be offered (ie, those imminently dying or who have no chance of surviving to discharge).15” Also, in Table 1, the geographic locations for Hospital A and Hospital B were inadvertently reversed. This article was corrected online.
