Surrogates and DNR Decisions

Laura Landro of the Wall Street Journal reports on a study conducted by researchers at Indiana University and the Regenstrief Institute. Published in the July issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, it found that when a surrogate had to evaluate whether or not to sign a DNR, the decision process took significantly longer than when patients decided for themselves.
