I'm sorry that you're going through all of this and having to deal with such unscrupulous people.
This place very, very much wanted him to have a DNR order. At that point, he did not. On his very first day (night, really) there, as they were trasnsferring him from the ambulette that brought him there to his bed, they started hounding him for the order. And I mean hounding him. My brother and I, who were accompanying him, had to literally throw the supervising nurse, who was doing the hounding, out of the room.

Fucking bitch.
