    DNR Bracelet

     
    Connecticut, like other states, allows patients to sign DNR orders (Do Not Resuscitate). Connecticut also allows doctors to issue metal or plastic DNR bracelets which emergency responders must respect. Why would a patient not want to be resuscitated? Only 0% of those who need CPR out of a hospital setting survive. Some who do "wake up" to find they have mental deficits.
