The Causeway Hospital has issued an apology to an elderly patient after she was asked to sign a ‘do not resuscitate’ (DNR) order.

The BBC reported that the patient (73) presented with COVID-19 Symptoms and was told that if her condition worsened and became grave, that the decision to revive her would be a clinical decision.
