that nurse should have her license revoked. She broke the Nightingale Pledge.

Hope the owner of the facility gets sued

Nurses refuse to give CPR, but watch how fast they are willing to give a young
male patient a sponge bath or insert a foley urinary catheter, pathetic.

She apparently was quick enough to put 'nurse' on her resume to 911.

A health care "professional" did not provide care at an ASSISTED living community.

Obama care at its finest, charge these worthless overpaid money grubbing bed pan pushers with manslaughter, charge then with theft for accepting Medicare and not providing services, charge then with violating her civil rights. a corporation exists at the courtesy of the people, they want to donate to campaigns and have lobbyists, but i have yet to see one executed for murder start with this one. Take that putrid little pimp sucking on medicare out of his posh little office and give him some jail time with Bubba the neighborhood deviate

I think the actual owners of this facility: Brookdale Senior Living, a national publically traded company under stock symbol BKD are bigger problem than Obama Care in this instance.

These company look for loyal soldier employees like the 'this is not my job' nurse. Brookdale is the problem.
