The first thing a paramedic does when on scene and you're DOA, isn't going to be looking through your wallet if there's a chance of resuscitation. If you really want to hold true to a DNR, throw it on a medical bracelet.

I would only be an organ donor if I could choose who would get the organs... point is that I don't want to give mine to some to ruined their organs under their own doing.

I also have been told that they treat organ donors differently and will not work as hard to save your life.... I'm sure this is along the same lines of good cops vs. bad cops... a select few ruin it for everyone.

Meh. I'd rather not do it just on the statement of if I'm gonna make it or not in the event of a accident is a split second decision. And I don't want a doc to say " IT, organ donor take him and harvest!"

o hai trish didn't see that was you i quoted

Medics don't have any information about your organ donor registry other than if you have a sticker on your license. And a sticker only means intention to donate, not a legal form. And lets be honest, you're worth more alive than dead for insurance purposes. lol

I'm not saying it's the medics necessarily, they would honestly be the least to let something like that sway their choices on saving a life IMO.

And the people that save your life are faaar disconnected from your life insurance underwriters.

What insurance could you possibly be talking about where you are worth more alive than dead besides life? With health insurance that it... you die, they're done with you! The sooner you die, the less than pay out in the end generally speaking. (of course depending on the way you go out, etc.... blah blah blah)

And that's fine, I have plenty of friends that are EMT Firefighters for HFD. I'm not saying they are the problem... in fact probably quite the opposite, but you cannot sit here and say that everyone in the health profession field is 100% honest.

Trusting everyone to treat your life as you do is like trusting our government.....

It was sarcasm that the hospital would rather rack up bills for your insurance than you be dead.

They don't do that, of course

I think you also forget that if someone dies they are no longer paying in, it is in their best interest to keep you alive so they can work to recoup the costs. Believe it or not if you die the costs are still very high to insurance companies. I work in a hospital and although I don't believe that anyone would let you die so that someone could take your organs I still know that it is possible.

Its not the paramedic to be worried about. Its the Hospital. They saved my life, then almost killed me, lied to my family, long story. I don't trust them fools from first hand !

Its not possible to choose for many obvious reasons. If it makes you feel better, those who ruined their themselves are rarely on the top of the list anyway.
