I love how these organizations always say they will launch an "internal investigation" which basically means they will do nothing.

In the follow-up story the family of the deceased says that they are satisfied with the care given to their family member as the deceased had wanted to die naturally.
And the nursing home is now throwing that nurse under the bus after initially backing her up. Not her fault they set pooty procedures.

Yeah, nursing homes are sketchy a lot of the time. Problems dealing with demented old people is a higher risk of violence for staff and other residents, so they have weird rules to begin with. But I've never heard of this before, it just seems illegal. I'm fairly sure in Canada that if you're a medical professional such as a nurse or doctor that you have to give life-saving care if someone is in distress, which is why most doctors immediately order an alcoholic beverage when flying on planes. Don't know about the US though, MeGrendel may know more since his wife is a nurse down there.
