    Right, says the daughter who dumped her mother in a death house. Abandoning the elderly is a sick practice in this country.

    A raging on media demand sheeple message totally detached from reality or the truth.

    the person on the phone and refused to do cpr was not a nurse. so the ethics for a nurse does not apply.

    The orginal news story improperly identified the person.

    Citation please. I don't find it. If there was no signed DNR on file, I agree with you. Until that's known for sure? No one has the right to criticize the nurse -- or whoever it was. (Some are saying she was not a nurse....?)

    Bull.

    The elderly are dumped in nursing homes and doped to shut them up and incapacitate them in more than 1 in 5 nursing homes.

    One in three nursing homes abuse residents.

    The number of elderly dumped in nursing homes is too great for the industry to handle. At least 54% of nursing homes are so understaffed that they cant provide adequate care for their patients.

    Ninety-four percent of nursing homes fail federal health and safety standards.

    etc etc

    CBS News has been told the elderly woman in this case did not have a "do not resuscitate" order on file.

    There was the original caller on her cell phone, then a receptionist, then a nurse, and the nurse was about to hand it to her boss when EMS arrived and the call ended.

    Assisted living =/= nursing home, fyi. Not the same at all.

    Sure it does, just goes to show that people are falling all over themselves to abandon their parents to a horrendous fate in these facilities.
