Hidden video of the nursing home room shows 89-year-old World War II veteran James Dempsey calling out for help six times while lying in a hospital bed and gasping for air at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation in 2014.
Former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles said in the deposition that she immediately and continually gave CPR to Dempsey from the time she entered the hospital room.
After watching the hidden video footage – which shows her not administering CPR at all – her story changes.
Another nurse came into the room, but failed to check any of Dempsey’s vital signs.
When nurses couldn’t get Dempsey’s oxygen machine operational, the nurses laughed.
It took 10 months for the nursing home to fire the nurses after being provided the video in November 2015.
Despite having a one-star rating on Medicare, the nursing home is still operational in Atlanta.
