Is AND better than DNR?

I've had a problem for a long time with the over-use and misuse of the DNR ("do not resuscitate") message found in health care directives. It's poorly understood by the public for one thing. And according to this article in the New York Times, there is no consistency in use between hospitals, doctors and nurses. A new phrase - "allow natural death" - is being proposed instead. Click here to read the article. Let me know what you think.
