Mum sadly passed away 7 years ago but my blood still boils when stories come up in my Facebook memories.

Darlington Memorial Hospital is where the following happened.

My Mum was given a #donotresuscitate and when I asked the doctor why he didn't tell me he said he can decide what he likes. Professional ? He even smiled. A massive argument ensued. I decided to do myself a little poll by flicking the file 'slightly open' and every bed in that ward had a #donotresuscitate red form.


Eventually when she got a little better and away from the hospital she told me that's what she wanted anyhow. She lived another 6 months after that but that doctor was reported after a call to me from the NHS who'd been alerted about his actions.
