DNR Tattoo

  1. I know we've talked about the subject of DNR tattoos before, but I still found this article interesting:

    When A Tattoo Literally Means Life Or Death : Shots - Health News : NPR

    They luckily made the right call, and found that the patient did have an actual DNR on file at home when they identified him.

    I had honestly never thought about states creating online databases for POLSTs (mentioned at the very end of the article), but it seems like such a simple and useful idea I don't know why more states haven't adopted it.

    Just some food for thought, happy Monday everyone!
