Research or a Human Being?
"Susie: She's DNR! (She grabs him.)
Jason: (He pushes her away.) She's Research!
Susie: She's NO CODE!" (Edson 82).
This play had a pretty intense ending. It was somewhat difficult for me to read. Let's just say I know from personal experience that medical staff do not always pay attention to whether a patient is DNR or not.
It really makes you wonder about how people are truly treated in hospitals.
I am not trying to criticize all hospital employees; my own mother works at a hospital. But there are just some people who should not have gone into their profession.
