Are Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) requests respected in your country?
So they leave those who refuse healthcare to rot in prison?They aren't, doing so could make you end up in prison (theoretically)
It's worth a try assuming your attempt completely fails.Here in the US it’s a state by state issue for suicides; I’ve read reports from NY where they are respected.
I’m taping a note to my body, along with leaving my medical directive alongside which adamantly and harshly (ie lawsuits will be filed if I am resuscitated against my will) states that I want NO resuscitation.
This may be accurate. I have heard conflicting reports.From what I understand in us DNR are only if you have a legal paper signed by YOUR dr. A simple note on your body will be ignored.
Yes . I’m in no way a expert on this. It is just my understanding from what I have read. You can have family members begging them to let you go and a note signed by you and it will be ignored . Unless it’s a legal paper signed by a DR. I believe it has to be a dr who you are currently under their care even :(
How what should be? Suicides are not respected, period, in this society.Well that is how it’s should Be! But I wonder if the ny man was in really bad health? Or elderly? It would probably not work for a person under 80 in ok physical health? Mental health is ignored in society and looked down upon or not believed. It is such A gray area. :(

It was a suicide attempt. They ignored the clear DNR. Gave me hope.
Not only do we suffer in life which brings us to this point but we have to suffer in death/during the dying process without aid and on top of that we have to wonder if our wishes to die will be respected.
That was referring to the first responders (doesn't matter if they are trained emergency units or random passerbys) on the scene. They would end up in prison for not helping you (meaning doing everything they can).So they leave those who refuse healthcare to rot in prison?
