Family backs adult care center that refused CPR to dying woman
Los Angeles Times

The family of an 87-year-old woman who died after a staff member at a Bakersfield nursing home refused to perform CPR last week backed the decision and said they do not plan to sue the facility. In a statement to the Associated Press, the family said the woman did not want life-prolonging intervention at the home. “We understand that the 911 tape of this event has caused concern, but our family knows that mom had full knowledge of the limitations of Glenwood Gardens and is at peace,” the statement read.
