The Washington Post has a story called “A Patient’s Death Prompts a Doctor to Assess ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ Orders,” in which a doctor whose patient died comments about patients and an important estate planning document called a “Do Not Resuscitate” or DNR. The article is especially important for estate planning lawyers because it gives the doctor’s perspective on DNR and another document called a “Do Not Intubate” or a DNI. The story starts with the patient being admitted to the emergency room in critical condition and the doctor resuscitates and incubates and save the patient’s life before learning that the patient had a DNR and a DNI.
