A few weeks ago a resident was found unresponsive by the nurse, the nurse did not know the code status and didn't do cpr, it was later concluded that the resident was a full code. This has brought up a lot of thought at work. Now clearly the nurse should of had someone check the chart and did not do so.My question is: if I find a resident unresponsive and don't know the code status right away should I start cpr or should I wait until the code status is determined ? I was personally taught to do cpr when in doubt however the directer of the facility seems to think otherwise. Please clarify.
