It's Policy

Nurse Refused to Give CPR to a Dying Woman
An elderly California woman died after a nurse at her senior living facility refused to perform CPR, despite a 911 dispatcher begging her over the phone.

Instead, the nurse said the facility's policy prohibited her from stepping in to save the woman's life.

"It's a human being," dispatcher Tracey Halvorson said in 911 audio released by the Bakersfield, Calif. fire department, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Is there anybody that's willing to help this lady and not let her die?"

"Not at this time," came the answer.
And the love of many will wax cold.
