WVC 16 - 30 C- ARTICLE 30C. DO NOT RESUSCITATE ACT.

WVC 16 - 30 C- 1 §16-30C-1. Short title.

The article may be cited as the "Do Not Resuscitate Act."

WVC 16 - 30 C- 2 §16-30C-2. Legislative findings and purposes.

(a) Findings. -- The Legislature hereby finds that:

(1) Although cardiopulmonary resuscitation has saved the lives of persons experiencing sudden, unexpected death, present medical data indicates that cardiopulmonary resuscitation rarely leads to prolonged survival in persons with chronic illnesses in whom death is expected;

(2) In many circumstances, the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation on persons may cause infliction of unwanted and unnecessary pain and suffering;

(3) All persons have a right to make health care decisions including the right to refuse cardiopulmonary resuscitation;

(4) Persons with incapacity have the right to have health care decisions made for them by surrogate decision-makers;

(5) Existing emergency medical services protocols require their personnel to proceed with cardiopulmonary resuscitation when they find a person in a cardiac or respiratory arrest even if such person has completed a living will or medical power of attorney, indicating that he/she does not wish to receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation; and

(6) The administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation by emergency medical services personnel to persons who have indicated by a living will or medical power of attorney or other means that they do not wish to receive such resuscitation offends the dignity of the person and conflicts with standards of accepted medical practice.

(b) Purpose. -- It is the purpose of this article to ensure that the right of a person to self-determination relating to cardiopulmonary resuscitation is protected. It is the intent of the Legislature by enacting this article to give direction to emergency medical services personnel and other health care providers in regard to the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

In the event conflict is unavoidable, federal law and regulation shall govern.

(e) If a surrogate decision maker is not reasonably available or capable of making a decision regarding a do-not-resuscitate order, an attending physician may issue a do-not-resuscitate order for a person with incapacity in a health care facility: Provided, That a second physician who has personally examined the person concurs in the opinion of the attending physician that the provision of cardiopulmonary resuscitation would be contrary to accepted medical standards.

WVC 16 - 30 C- 12 §16-30C-12. Preservation of existing rights.

(a) Nothing in this article shall impair or supersede any legal right or legal responsibility which any person may have to effect the withholding of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in any lawful manner. In such respect, the provisions of this article are cumulative.

(b) Nothing in this article shall be construed to preclude a court of competent jurisdiction from approving the issuance of a do not resuscitate order under circumstances other than those under which such an order may be issued pursuant to the provisions of this article.

WVC 16 - 30 C- 14 §16-30C-14. Not suicide or murder.

The withholding of cardiopulmonary resuscitation from a person in accordance with the provisions of this article does not, for any purpose, constitute suicide or murder. The withholding of cardiopulmonary resuscitation from a person in accordance with the provisions of this article, however, shall not relieve any individual of responsibility for any criminal acts that may have caused the person's condition. Nothing in this article shall be construed to legalize, condone, authorize or approve mercy killing or assisted suicide.

WVC 16 - 30 C- 15 §16-30C-15. Full faith and credit.

It is the intention of the Legislature to recognize that existence of do not resuscitate identification correctly expresses the will of any person who bears it and that foreign courts recognize this expression and give full faith and credit to do not resuscitate identification.

WVC 16 - 30 C- 16 §16-30C-16. Severability.

The provisions of this article are severable and if any provision, section or part thereof shall be held invalid, unconstitutional or inapplicable to any person or circumstance, such invalidity, unconstitutionality or inapplicability shall not affect or impair any other remaining provisions contained herein.
