Smoking with an oxygen tank on? Really? Maybe thats why she needed the oxygen to begin with? Smoking really is dangerous.

What an idiot!! Might as well put a torch to her face!

Isn't Rippling River an assisted living center? Who is the moron who lets this lady have cigarettes and a lighter?

Rippling River is a public housing complex which includes some assisted living quarters but also has congregate care and independent living units.

I find it odd that you would blame an alleged caregiver for 'letting this lady have cigarettes and a lighter.' Are you suggesting that caregivers should be babysitting residents 24/7? That would mean that Rippling River would have to have 3 caregivers per resident (if they are on 8-hour shifts).

Of course, the article doesn't state whether this woman was a resident of assisted living. But why would you immediately think that it's someone else's fault rather than the person who actually did something as thoughtless as smoking while using oxygen?
