We need a law for resusitation age limits!!!

Just a quick note of something that I think needs to be implemented for the humane treatment of older adults who would happen to have their heart stop beating:

"Anyone over the age of 90 years should automatically deemed DNR."

I would even go as low as 85 years old if allowed. It's almost inhumane to code an patient who is over 90 years old and put them through that.

Maybe I will get into this more in depth later.


Just a thought.

I also think it should be mandatory that all people should spend one year working in a hospital. The healthcare crisis would be ended in a day.

Good to see you back in action.

Yes that along with a $5 or $10 charge for anyone without insurance who wanted to use the ER as a clinic.
