Do Not Resuscitate Tattoo

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting story about a patient with a chest tattoo reading "Do Not Resuscitate".  We've joked about this in these forums before.  We've questioned how legitimately we should consider a tattoo like this.  It seems we now have a case study to look at.

Sorry but I'm still doing CPR as it's not a legal document.  Simple as that.  

I think that if a person is going to have this tattooed on their chest then they better have a DNR in paper on their person at all times.  I know that's a big requirement but if you want me to honor the ink, you better show me the paper.
