Is there any chance this woman had a Do Not resuscitate order?

My question too. But of course, these sensationalist news articles won’t include that crucial detail.

Looks like … no.

On the tape, a different Glenwood Gardens employee said that an elderly woman had passed out in the facility’s dining room while eating. She was barely breathing and, according to KGET-TV, did not have a do-not-resuscitate order.

Very last sentence of the L.A. Times article:

Bayless’ daughter told KGET that she was a nurse and was satisfied with her mother’s care at Glenwood Gardens, the station reported.

If the family is o.k. with what Glenwood Gardens refused to do (do CPR), why is this news? Doing CPR on an 87 year old person would undoubtedly crack her ribs and cause other damage, making her bed-ridden and susceptible to much worse things than death, IMO.

The daughter, who is a nurse, obviously knows more about the consequences of CPR on an 87-year-old than the news reporter or the dispatcher.

Good grief. My own father told me that if he collapses, not to let anyone do CPR on him (and he’s only 68) because he doesn’t want his ribs cracked (already had open heart surgery once) and he doesn’t want to live in a debilitated state.

If the daughter doesn’t appear to have a problem with it, then it is nobody else’s business.

Your point is well taken however it is every other residents and their famlies business.

As the article stated, residents and patients are well aware of the policy. If they don’t like it, find a different assisted living place.

Do you understand how CPR works?

You can easily flat-out kill an elderly patient by doing CPR. At absolute best, they now are alive but with massive contusions and broken ribs. Whatever was killing them is still there in the first place, and now they have internal bleeding and severe pain.

I was first ARC certified in 1960. Multiple additional times since then.

Then you clearly understand why it’s completely reasonable not to do to a 87 year old woman in many, many cases, right?

re: #13 Glenn Beck’s Grand Unifying Theory of Obdicut

We can second guess and argue this forever. None of us was there. It depends on the individuals or attorney-in-facts wishes and instructions and whether they match with the nursing homes policies.

Personally, at over 70, I’ll still take CPR. Obviously the 911 operator and the nurse had a difference of opinion.

I live in a community where the average age is 78 and there are a significant number of senior-seniors. The majority of us opt for CPR.

re: #14 Bob Dillon

The nurse is far more qualified than the 911 operator to make that call. Far, far more.

What you and those you know choose doesn’t matter in the least. It’s between this woman and her doctors and nurses. You agree that choosing not to give CPR can be a perfectly good medical decision, even if it’s not what you choose for yourself. So what on earth is the big deal with this story for you?
