Do-Not-Resuscitate Orders Tough


via Do-Not-Resuscitate Orders Tough – MedicineNet – Health and Medical Information Produced by Doctors.

“When patients are incapable of deciding what should happen if their heart stops beating — possibly because they are unconscious, suffering from dementia or unable to speak — a spouse, relative or other loved one usually has to make the difficult decision whether to sign an order to let them die naturally or allow extreme measures to keep them alive.”

I hear they are now putting “do not resuscitate” orders on peoples refrigerators. Obamacare’s way of containing costs.
