Genuinely difficult question, but I answered no. Having a DNR signed generally indicates someone is already in relatively frail condition, and the trauma of resuscitation (broken ribs, bruising, etc.) is often a very painful recovery for someone who is elderly and in weakened condition already. Of course all cases are unique, but signing the DNR is also a way of avoiding entering that condition, be it accidental or not.
