88 organisations filled in a snap shot survey in late April. They told us about Do Not Attempt Resuscitation (DNAR) decisions during coronavirus for the people they support.
The survey found that approximately two thirds of the organisations replying did not report an increase in DNARs in 2020 for the people they support.
But some organisations said DNAR decisions had been made either on groups of people or on individuals without consultation with them, their loved ones or the people who support them. This was not in accordance with guidance and best practice, and in some cases could be illegal.
