Minnesota Case Illustrates Importance of POLST

Several Minnesota paramedics are under investigation after they stopped resuscitating a nursing home patient at her husband’s request.  The woman had no POLST, which the paramedics could and should honor.  Instead, all they had was the husband’s instructions, which they could not honor.  

I discussed this case briefly on FOX News and in the Pioneer Press.
