Doctors say ‘do not resuscitate’ Down’s syndrome man | News | The Christian Institute: A family is taking legal action after doctors placed a ‘do not resuscitate’ (DNR) order on a male patient who has Down’s syndrome. The man, who also suffers from dementia, was in hospital in Margate to have a feeding tube fitted. The family were unaware of the decision made by the doctors despite visits almost daily. The DNR form was only discovered when carers found it in a bag on the man’s return to his care home.
