It is quite normal for a NH to ask what your/your husbands wishes are in the even of him needing resuscitation. It is always best for the staff to know beforehand.j have been asked by Nursing home to signe a D.N.R on my husband although he is quite well at moment , is this usual for nursing homes to do this , I would welcome some advice please.
I agree, it's much better to be able to think about this when there isn't any pressure.when dad went into his care home last year this was one of the questions the manager asked - and I was glad, actually, that I could consider it at a time dad was fine so I wasn't under pressure during a crisis.....So, yes, I think it's a usual practice, nothing sinister.
