WTH? What kind of nursing home facility is this?? The nurse refused to give CPR to a dying 87 year old patient and told the caller to call 911 for help!! What is this part of Obamacare in action??
The nursing home facility claims it is part of their POLICY NOT to give CPR?? Sounds like the kind of care we’ve been hearing out of the UK Health System.
I hope the family sues or this facility changes it’s policy after this. I can’t imagine sending my dad or any family member to a facility like this and they have the nerve to consider it prestigious? I would think after hearing this story many people would want to consider another facility for their elderly family members care.
Via Tucson News Now KOLD:
Bakersfield fire dispatcher Tracey Halvorson pleaded with the woman on the other end of the line, begging her to start CPR on an elderly woman who was barely breathing.
“It’s a human being,” Halvorson said, speaking quickly. “Is there anybody that’s willing to help this lady and not let her die?”
The woman paused.
“Um, not at this time.”
