Randy should not be forced to return to GPC.
VCH FOI told me that they have nothing in their data base about the use of Do Not Transfer protocols.
I asked Richard Singleton, director of risk management for a letter saying that VCH would never put a DNR/DNT Order on Randy again and he refused although Randy has a representation agreement saying he wants FULL CODE. In addition Richard said he would not negotiate any safety issues. Things are just fine at GPC..
Doctor's orders can be put on a patient's chart on the whim of a doctor, no questions asked. The rogue doctor can do as he wants. No witnesses. No informed consent.
I do not know who is in charge. No one seems to know. To help us is to vocalize your dismay: send emails to : firstname.lastname@example.org. Kip is the chairman of the board. I am not sure if he reads his emails but at least you have tried also forward a copy of this blog link to your contacts.
VCH has to be made accountable; it is just a matter of time that the house of cards will collapse and fall hopefully not hurting too many vulnerable patients and families on the way down. Beware of the venom of the snake oil salesmen.

Following orders from a superior is no defense to criminally prosecute and each nurse who blindly follow doctor's orders that would in high probability lead to death should along with the doctor be criminally prosecuted.
