    I think I want to find that nurse and whoever came up with that policy and perform CPR on them with both my feet.

    Wife & I discussd this one the other day. She & her sister are both nurses & her family owns several nursing homes & an assisted living facility so it hits close to home for us as they have been in this position both in their careers & growing up in the family business. Based on the information given, the nurse did exactly what she was supposed to do. Callous as this may sound, old people die in assisted living facilities & CPR is inherently violent, particularly on an older person. The compassionate thing to do is to initiate comfort measures at that point. If it were my mom , I'd rather her last moments be peaceful & comfortable as opposed to having someone pounding on her chest breaking old brittle ribs that puncture her lungs & possibly heart also.
