Do Not Rescusitate Request
I have mentioned on this glorious site the "S" (death) word on numerous occasions.
Now before I ask the following question, please everyone.
I am OK, but the following question intrigues me..
Just say I had to go into Hospital for a complex operation with major risks.
It was discussed with me the chances of surviving during the operation.
Now the with me I don't want to have a weaker lifestyle than what I have now.
I instruct the medics that if I take a turn for the worst Do Not Recusitate.
What would be the procedure for this be, would I, I am presuming have to sign a disclaimer?
I would also instruct that if they need anything to take any organ they can make use of.
I emphasise again, I am fully Compos Mentis.
I am not thinking or going to attempt to end my life.
Thank you Folks
