How many DNR requests are rejected

Dan Hillstead made this Freedom of Information request to Airedale NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

We're waiting for Dan Hillstead to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Airedale NHS Foundation Trust,

I would like to find out the following:

How many DNR orders were overturned between the years 2007-2012 that led to the attempted resuscitation of a patient (whether that was successful or not)?

How many DNR orders were overturned between the years 2012-2017 that led to the attempted resuscitation of a patient (whether that was successful or not)?

How does your Trust receive DNR Orders from patients?

Many thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Dan Hillstead

Dear Mr Hillstead

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 6^th November 2018.  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHST REF 3852. 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 4^th December 2018.   We will endeavour to
respond to you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage
delays or if we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the public interest in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request, or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  If you still wish to receive the information, you will
need to pay the fee before we proceed with your request.  We will also
offer assistance and advise you if, by modifying your request, we could
provide you with some non-exempt or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

Dear Mr Hillstead

 

Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (ANHST REF. 3852) please find our response below.  

 

The information you have requested is not recorded centrally.  To explain
further, Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR)  is
regularly reviewed as part of the patient’s clinical  treatment course,
but we do not collect figures about this.   We would not describe a DNACPR
request as being rejected or overturned, simply a change in treatment
goals based on a patient’s evolving condition.

 

The Trust would receive a DNACPR from a patient.  This is filed in the
patient’s health record and a Regional form is completed on Systm1 (the
electronic patient record), with a printed copy  made for the patient to
keep.  

 

Whilst we have not yet made a decision as a Trust about implementation, it
is likely that we will eventually adopt the National ReSPECT process,
which encourages joint care planning between the patient and healthcare
professionals.

 

To give you further background information I have attached a copy of the
current Trust  DNACPR Policy which you may find useful.

 

We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write within 40 working days to
Brendan Brown, Chief Executive at the address below to request a review. 
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner under
section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review.

 

Unless identified as another party's copyright, you may use and re-use the
information we have provided (not including logos or photographs), free of
charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government
Licence which can be viewed via the link below.

We are continually working to improve our Freedom of Information service
and we will shortly send you a brief, anonymous, on line feedback form. 
We would be very grateful if you could take a few moments to complete and
submit this.

 

Yours sincerely
