I live in Florida- land of the newly wed or nearly dead- with that said- there is an ALF/SNF or a "retirement whatever" on every street and sometime multiple on the same street. When I was working as a medic and got the call for "unconscious/unresponsive" at one of these gems- staff would be performing CPR; sometimes on a patient with a pulse that was responsive, sometime on a pt that really needed it and sometimes on a pt that needed it 6 hours ago. Point is they NEVER withheld CPR if they believed it was necessary. I cannot fathom how a "medical professional" could withhold CPR on a person that needed it- unless there was a DNR. That facility needs to be investigated, and if that "nurse" is really a nurse- there should be consequences for her. Hell, you can't even get a job in the medical field in the state of Fl without being at least BLS certified. And I think there is also more to the story than what is being reported- go figure.
