Wednesday 24-11-10: DNR?

Dr T, the GP for Eastwood Priory, contacted me. He wanted to discontinue some of the Old Man’s medication, in the hope of reducing his drowsiness; this I agreed to. (He told me that the Old Man had been switched from paracetamol back to co-codamol.) Dr T also wanted to categorise the Old Man as DNR; this I said that I would consider, rather than making a snap decision.
That evening, I discussed the situation with Dr & Dr LA. Provisionally I have now decided that the Old Man should be categorised as DNR.
