Re: 911 Operater Pleads With Nursing Home Nurse to Save a Life

The only time a nurse should not use CPR is if a Do Not Resuscitate order has been requested by the client, and that doesn't seem to be the case in this situation.

I hope that the person responsible will b held to account. No care facility should have any right to deny CPR to a resident unless they have an DNR order.
They likely won't. The nurses there followed procedure according to their employer. I doubt anything will really come of it. Nursing homes have a poor reputation in the United States, and it's usually for a good reason.
