BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The family of a California woman who died after a nurse refused to give her CPR says it will not sue the facility she was staying in.
Lorraine Bayless's relatives say the 87-year-old specifically chose Glenwood Gardens in Bakersfield knowing it did not have medical staff, as she did not want to be resuscitated.
Late Tuesday night, the company that operates the facility says the employee who refused to cooperate with a 911 dispatcher and perform CPR misinterpreted policy.
