Bill would make it illegal to bar life-saving help
San Diego Union-Tribune

California lawmakers on Tuesday sent legislation to Gov. Jerry Brown that would bar employers from having policies that prohibit offering life-saving medical help in an emergency after a worker’s attention-grabbing refusal to perform CPR on a resident at an independent-living facility. The bill by Assemblyman Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield, was prompted by the February death of Lorraine Bayless, 87, at a Bakersfield retirement home.
