Canterbury DHB


Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

This difficult area has been well summarised on the Withholding CPR Form, QMR0217, where resuscitation status is recorded. The back of this form contains a discussion of the difficulties surrounding these decisions. Copies are available on each ward.

Note: Discussions and decisions relating to the withholding of CPR are made by the Consultant in conjunction with other ward staff and the patient and family.
