Woman dies after nurse refuses to do CPR
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Police on Monday were investigating whether there was any criminal wrongdoing in the handling of a health emergency at an independent living facility where a woman died after a nurse refused to provide CPR.
An official at Glenwood Gardens, a sprawling, gated facility in Bakersfield, defended the nurse, saying she had followed policy in dealing with the 87-year-old woman who collapsed in a dining room.
A police dispatcher who fielded the 911 call was told the woman appeared to have a heart problem and was barely breathing.
