Elderly Woman Dies After Nurse Refuses to Give Her CPR

Elderly Woman Dies After Nurse Refuses to Give Her CPR | 911 dispatchers | Scoop.it
A 911 dispatcher pleaded with a nurse at a Bakersfield, Calif., senior living facility to save the life of an elderly woman by giving her CPR, but the nurse said policy did not allow her to, according to a newly released audiotape of the call.
amber michelle kittelson's insight:

i think that the police could have sent someone over to the home and perform CPR on the woman so she does not die and i think the nurse could have at least done something to help her even if it is against protocol.

what i learned about this topic is that the workers should be able to stay awake during the time that they work because they could be in a deep sleep and a person could be calling 911 and they would not hear it and that be person could be in danger and the 911 dispatcher  would not know it.

California boy, 12, admits hanging his small dog ‘to see it die’: cops 

California boy, 12, admits hanging his small dog ‘to see it die’: cops  | 911 dispatchers | Scoop.it
A 12-year-old California boy allegedly hanged his small dog on a door handle to "see it die" in a disturbing case of animal cruelty, police said.

 

"I was mad at the dog, so I killed it," the unidentified juvenile casually told investigators after the Friday incident in Salinas, Calif., cops said.

"I wanted to see it die," the boy purportedly boasted.

Police found the canine corpse after he boy's 19-year-old sister called 911 and blurted out, "He's hurting the dog," before the dispatcher heard a struggle and the line hung up, a Salinas Police spokesman told the Daily News.

"She was trying to intervene, and he battered her," Officer Miguel Cabrera told The News. "So she left the apartment with a second dog, trying to protect it."

A building manager helped them gain entry with a pass key, and officers found the motionless 12-pound terrier mix hanging by its collar from a bedroom door handle, police said.

The 12-year-old boy came out of the same bedroom and "spontaneously" admitted his role in the heinous act, Cabrera said.

The sister returned a short time later and also told officers the boy took the dog's life, Cabrera told The News.

He said it's not clear what sparked the boy's rage.

i think that the police should take this boy to a counselor and try to get him to work on his anger issues because if he can hurt an innocent dog that made him angry then he could also do the same to a human being.

A kid like this has anger issues and is potentially a sociopath. He doesn't know how to control his anger but also showed no signs of empathy and concern for his older sister. He is violent and out of control and mentally unstable. I don't think he sounds like someone who should be living in the home and he definitely needs some sort of institutionalization. I wonder what became of him...since this was reported in October.

Many serial killers start out by abusing animals...this is not a good sign for this kid.Inability to control anger&rage, as well as jealousy and/or anti-social behavior all seem to be common denominators in the mind of these shooters. But they also appear to lack empathy for their victims and seem detached from reality and unable to connect with others emotionally.

Wow, no amount of money can ever replace what the state did the this poor man. Jail for 22 years and innocent. I think the man who set him up should be severely punished. This witness was trained to say that this is the man who committed the crime. There were also many leads that weren't followed which is another big mistake that was made. This is one of many reasons why I am against the death penalty as well, this man was innocent and wrongfully convicted.
Shasta Pomeroy's comment, March 2, 2014 6:05 PM
It is truly sad that this man had to serves prison time that, according to recent testimony, he did not even commit. By finding out the testimony of others aware of the crime shows that they were coaxed to frame this man as the offender. This is an example of why it is so important to make sure that investigators are given a proper amount of time in which analyze crime scene and exhaust all options to make sure that the correct individual is convicted.
Maria Guadalupe Sutherland's curator insight, March 6, 2014 11:12 PM

I don’t think any amount of money is enough for having lost his freedom for 22 years! I’m sure the money will be nice, like the article states, the man will have the money needed to cover his medical expenses and have enough after legal fees to not have to worry about money until he goes to a better place.  He has a lot of things to do and places to see and I hope he gets a chance to enjoy some of the money and that not all of it goes to his medical bill because after being looked up for so long, he needs to have some fun and enjoy whatever is left of his life.  It’s sad that the police back then didn’t do their job right and that an innocent man went to jail.  I know that whoever didn’t follow up on all the leads back then are not going to be the ones actually paying for it, but in the long run I think one way or another we all get what we deserve especially when we negligently do something in the line of duty and take short cuts and mess around with the rights and freedoms of others.
