Hey, Hey.. I Wanna Be a DNR

Click on this YouTube presentation below for some lyrical insight into what is going on in the "non-palliative" care and treatment of some sick patients who deserve palliative and hospice care. You may go to YouTube to read comments from professionals and others but come back and let us know what you think about this "publicizing" of Do Not Resusitate, palliation and hospice. ..Maurice.

Forgive me but half way through the video I had to turn it off. I would have the information sink in better should it have been narrated other than that of what they were expressing be in the way of a song.

i loved the song! As an ER nurse i find the lyrics right on the money. it's funny and expresses alot of angst against very painful, disrespectful things we do to patients at the end of their lives just to keep them from dying. Twice i have had to extubate patients in the ER and be there when they died with their families and both times there was a valid DNR before the patient was brought to us, by worried family members who just couldn't get their minds around saying goodbye to their parents' and ergo made them suffer great indignities by dying under the sterile galring lights of an ER trauma room. am considering having "do not intubate" tattoed on my vocal cords.
