    What criminal investigation? What law was broken? No one is required to provide medical assistance unless they are in a hospital.

    (Thanks for the info above...if the woman had no DNR order in place, the organization should be put out of business.)

    It puts you at no more risk than anyplace else. If they need assistance and it is not an assisted living facility they hire their own nurses etc.

    Please stop assuming. Two different types of facility's and living armaments.

    Clearly it does if they're not going to do anything to help a woman lying on the ground with no pulse. She would have received better care at a shopping mall.

    From the AP:

    "Police in Bakersfield are investigating whether there was any criminal wrongdoing in an independent living facility's handling of a resident's death after a nurse refused to perform CPR on the woman."

    "Beard said the department is looking into the incident. She said she can't provide any additional information because the investigation is ongoing."

    Why because the mall is closer to a fire station or hospital? Maybe if people weren't sue happy it would not have to be this way.

    It's not a given. In fact, I think it's highly unlikely any charges will be pressed. But civilly? That's another story.

    I lost track of where the real info is, the reporting has been atrocious on this. Is it now being reported she had no pulse?

    Because someone would have likely provided the CPR she needed.

    Re: Calif. woman dies after nurse refuses to perform CPR

    My guess is that the "nurse," may get her license yanked for not helping out regardless of company policy. Then she will turn around and sue the 'company," because their policy cost her her license. They will estimate, in court, her projected life earnings and award her that amount.

    She let's the lady die and then goes on permanent vacation, paid in full, smelling like a rose.

    America. Gotta love it.

    Maybe, maybe not. Fact is you don't know.
