I will pay for the following article Identify a researchable problem in long term care using practical examples and citing from literature. The problem refers to whether a patient’s DNR status should deny them emergency treatment. The work is to be 2 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Whether a patients DNR status should deny them emergency treatment? A patient’s Do-not-resuscitate (DNR) status is meant to prohibit the health careprofessionals including doctors and nurses to attempt any emergency treatment like cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) even if physical health status becomes dangerous and the heart rate dwindles. Like euthanasia and prohibition of blood transfusion for Jehovah’s witnesses, the DNR request has also attracted much controversy in the healthcare field. It is not just a request, but a legal order on behalf of the patient to stop the medical personnel from performing an emergency procedure like CPR on him/her even if cardiac arrest is likely otherwise. A DNR does not become an obstacle in the way of most medical treatments like dialysis, surgery, chemotherapy etc. However, any emergency procedure which would consist of intubation or CPR is not allowed and patients with DNR status are denied that.
