ATLANTA — Two nurses lost their licenses after a television station persuaded courts to unseal a video secretly recorded by the family of a man who died in their care…
But WXIA-TV said the nurses didn’t surrender their licenses until this September, [J4MB: almost three years after the man’s death] after it sent The Georgia Board of Nursing a link to the video the nursing home fought three years to keep secret.
The nurses included a nursing supervisor who told attorneys that, when she learned Dempsey had stopped breathing, she rushed to his room and took over CPR, keeping it up until paramedics arrived. The video shows that nobody was doing CPR when she arrived, and she did not start immediately.
After being shown the video, she told the attorneys it was an honest mistake, based on her normal actions, the station reported.
