Resuscitation: It’s Not Like TV

Below is a link to a well-written article on CPR/resuscitation while you are in the hospital.  The author, Dr. K.V. Scruggs, lays out the situations facing families every day.  It’s very informative, including a Five Wishes form or a MOST form. Here are the links to these as well:

A Five Wishes (https://agingwithdignity.org/docs/default-source/default-document-library/product-samples/fwsample.pdf?sfvrsn=2) or MOST form Unknown(http://www.polst.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/NC-MOST-Form.pdf) tells those who will care for you and who will make decisions for you what those decisions should be. Gift your family with your wishes so they know how to take care of you in the way you envision.

I urge you to open the link below and help yourself to some very valuable information. Thank you, Dr. Scruggs.
