Simon’s Law: “To Be Heard”

Simon’s Law: “To Be Heard”

Read this.  Baby's death hastened because of an unauthorized DNR.  Illegal DNRs are very common in my experience in British Columbia.  DNRs (MOSTs) do not require the signature of the patient.  How easy it is for a doctor for whatever reason, perhaps, in the best interest of the patient, to put a DNR on a patient.  No oversight safeguard is necessary;  just the word of a doctor. Doctors justify illegal DNRs since a patient is going to die anyways.
