Nurses' Knowledge of the Resuscitation Status of Patients and Action in the Event of Cardiorespiratory Arrest
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1993 Jun 12; 306(6892): 1577-1578.
Since cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a traumatic procedure for both patient and doctor, patients with little to gain from it often have "Do not resuscitate" written in their notes. At the time of a cardiac arrest, however, there is often confusion over an individual patient's resuscitation status. This can result in resuscitation being started and then stopped, sometimes after a considerable time, when someone finds a do not resuscitate order in the notes. This study set out to determine how nurses' knowledge of resuscitation status and proposed action in the event of a patient suffering a cardiac arrest agreed with the documented resuscitation status.
