AND

Meaning

Allow natural death

A healthcare term that is the same as the DNR acronym but is preferred among health professionals because it describes what is being done instead of what is not being done; withholds CPR or ACLS in respect to the patient's wishes.

Example

"My aunt had an AND wish so the medical staff let her pass away the way she wanted."
