Local Reaction to Denying CPR to Senior Who Collapsed and Died in California


The 87 year old woman collapsed at a senior living facility.  

 

The 9-1-1 oprrator frantically tried to get the nurse to do CPR on the woman, but she refused saying it was against their policy.

 

Todd Sensebach with "Home Instead Senior Care" here in Bend is shocked by that behavior.

 

"To say that they have a no CPR policy, is appalling -- especiaily because the lady, who is a nurse, who obviously knows how to do CPR, doesn't do it to follow some policy.   I don't know the right words, that's just really stupid."

 

Sensenbach says he knows of no senior care facilities in Oregon that would forbid delivering CPR  at them.
