An assisted living facility for the elderly today defended the refusal of a staffer to give CPR to an elderly woman who had collapsed on the floor and later died.
The woman was identified today as a resident services director, not a nurse as previously reported. The woman repeatedly rebuffed pleas from the 911 dispatcher during a seven minute call on Feb. 26 to give the woman CPR or to ask someone else to do it.
Lorraine Bayless, 87, died later that day after being taken to a hospital by ambulance.
