The Issue: DNR and/or Medical Alert Tattoos. Literature Essay (Essay Sample)


The Issue: DNR and/or Medical Alert Tattoos
A 70 year old, intoxicated, unconscious man is brought to the ER with "Do Not Resuscitate" tattooed on his chest. He does not regain consciousness and his condition continues to deteriorate. What do the doctors do? Read the CBS News article on this dilemma and take a look at the tattoo. 'Not' is underlined! And it's signed! CBS article is attached.
***Instructions for the paper are as follows:
In 2 pages (approximately 500-700 words), take a position on DNR and/or medical alert tattoos. Support the thesis position with specific reasons, drawing evidence from at least 2 sources. Support for the thesis position should include logically placed refutation of the/an opposing viewpoint. The position paper should be formal and follow MLA style (format & documentation). Works Cited page needed.
*****I ordered a Discussion assignment regarding this topic and would like for the same writer to do both assignments so that the same information can be used in both assignments.
**There are articles attached that are viewpoints to read and consider, according to the instructor.

While looking through all of the citations and articles, I could not find these quotes in the corresponding articles that you have quoted. I can not turn in a paper that has in-text citations that do not go with the articles. I need the in-text citations to correspond with the articles and be appropriately referenced in the Works Cited page.
The articles are paraphrased
If a patient has a DNR tattoo, yet no form of valid DNR, the clinician should proceed with the existing local protocol and immediately begin resuscitation efforts (Sokol et al. 1).
