Resuscitation Decisions in a General Hospital
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1990 Mar 24; 300(6727): 785.
Not all hospital inpatients are suitable for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. In the United States formalised "Do not resuscitate" policies exist, and in the United Kingdom most doctors now accept the need to make and document decisions about whether patients should be resuscitated. Although there are many American reports on this subject, little has been published on what happens in British hospitals. We reviewed this hospital's procedure with regard to decisions not to resuscitate.
