Is a Living Will the same as a Do Not Resuscitate Order?
Those two documents are different, but often work together.
A Do Not Resuscitate Order is a Doctor’s order.
A Living Will is your written wishes as to end of life decisions if you can’t make them.
A Living Will does not mean don’t treat me. Rather it means that if the end is near, and I can’t make decisions, then here is how I want to be treated. You can list the treatments you will accept and those you will deny.
Your wellbeing and dignity are protected with a Living Will.
