Nurse Fails To Offer Dying Patient CPR
A nurse who saw a patient dying, failed to offer him CPR. However, the nursing home's policy was to offer every effort to resuscitate a patient. Upon the patient's death, the nurse then asked an aide to lie and say that she had in fact attempted CPR.
The family was appalled by the whole incident. “This nurse had a duty of care to my father as a registered nurse and she didn’t give that care out. To then ask a colleague to lie about it is absolutely disgusting.” For more, read the story.
