The Writing Is On The Wall…Or Your Body?
Medical tattoos are on the rise in Canada, and recently a case in he New England Journal of Medicine showed how physcians dealt with a man with a do not resuscitate (DNR) tattoo on his chest. It brought in legal, ethical and moral decisions that needed to be addressed when having to care for a man trying to indicate his wishes for his life on his body with a tattoo.
An article in the National Post called “Doctors Obey?” by Vanessa Hrvatin and Lindsey Bever, laid out physicians can faced with tough decisions. According to Dr. Bojan Paunovic, executive member of the Canadian Critical Care Society and an ICU physician, “Unless the Supreme Court says a tattoo is a legally binding document, then it’s nothing more than an expression of emotion.” I will be interested to see what more comes of stories like this.
