Thank you for citing the statute. It's especially confusing when laws are different from one state to another. I'm an IL resident but was hospitalized in WI. I also worked in ICU in WI for 10 years.

I was grateful my caregivers followed my wishes. A patient who wants to be a full code has equal rights. Pressuring a patient either way is wrong, of course.

Our role should be to educate so the patient understands the choices, never
to coerce.

P.S. as a long time secret fan of yours, I wish YOU were my doctor.
