DNR Orders and Power of Attorney: Preventing Miscommunication in Medical Emergencies

Hospital dramas and police procedurals paint a vivid, but ultimately simplistic, image of emergency hospital care. The heroic doctor knows exactly what diagnosis to make and which actions to take to save the patient's life at the last possible moment. The intrepid nurse helps the patient change their views on mortality and relationships, all because of their competing views on DNR orders. CPR nearly always saves the patient's life. In "The New DNR/ POSLT: The Real Deal on End-of-Life-Wishes," Shay Jacobson and Martha Kern suggest that the reality of DNR is much more complex and controversial. According to Jacobson and Kern, recent changes to DNR documents have greatly reduced the miscommunication caused by DNR, but some questions still remain.
