The Telegraph reports that in England:
Elderly patients are being condemned to an early death by hospitals making secret use of “do not resuscitate” orders, an investigation has found. …
Action on Elder Abuse, an independent charity, carried out its own analysis of the official watchdog’s inspection reports. The charity’s findings, published today, uncover widespread evidence that patients are being left to die, without families knowing that such decisions have been taken.
