    Taking care of DNR patients. The point?

    I should have never made the post. I never mentioned anything about not providing care. I am a good nurse with a lot to learn but I wouldnt do my job! I was simply asking for others to help me understand the tx process with DNR. Next time...ill pick up a book...lol... thanks Newboy!

    Thank you. I totally agree. Its crazy how everyone talks this "compassion" but have been very rude to me on this forum. Irony. Oh well. Thank you.

    I would like to THANK YOU all for sharing your personal experiences with working with DNR patients and how powerful that experience can be for a nurse. You all are right, I should put the same effort in caring for a full code as a DNR. DNR does not mean Do Not Care - it is just a different kind of care and I pray that I have more experiences with DNR patients!!! My attitude regarding this matter has changed and I am very appreciative of this forum.

    I have learned alot. And next time...Ill just provide safe and excellent care to ALL of my patients and their familes...and just keep my personal opinions about it to myself. Its not about me when I step foot into that hospital anyway! Thank you for your response. I HAVE LEARNED ALOT!!!

    Thank you for your response. Although the comments are pretty rude...I am humbled and seriously...I will approach this line of care differently. Im new and still learning. Thank you!
