AAPS MO Chapter Supports Simon’s Law

A DNR order can be placed in a child’s medical record without parental consent.

Simon’s Law is designed to address this injustice. Missouri House Bill 1915 was named after Simon Crosier, who died in a St. Louis hospital at age three months and whose parents were horrified to learn—only after his death—that a DNR had been secretly placed in his medical chart.
