I wanna get that serious story now this is the 911 -- -- you can hear -- operate -- pleading with an employee at a retirement home to perform CPR on a resident.
-- -- -- The welcome refused because it was against policy -- Get -- Air Canada up -- -- looking.
I'm looking for -- If you can't put up at -- modeling amp -- pocket passer by hadn't -- -- can if CPR it from the phone please -- okay.
He's got a letter if -- human being I don't military -- Whether it's quite.
-- -- -- -- I'm not as -- -- On the opposite very tough stop -- -- some push back via the executive director of the facility defended the employee.
And the company's policy that executive director said quote.
Our practice is to immediately called emergency manager a medical personnel for assistance.
And to wait with the individual needing attention until such personal arrives on mosques and areas here.
-- -- The woman the patient she knew the policy when she moved into the facilitate but -- looks to me like the fear of loyalists and contract policy.
Interfered with basic humanity here you wouldn't disagree without would you.
I would agree with you but I would do it probably in the opposite way that you mean and I take this very seriously.
This is a situation where there is no legal remedy.
You cannot say that facility and you cannot -- that nurse for failing to give CPR there is no legal remedy and the fact.
That there was no legal remedy is what allowed them to be so callous with this woman but if the lawyers could be involved not -- hold them accountable you -- sure -- -- -- -- but it's the fear of the lawsuit that into theater here with the humanity of the woman who send -- and I know I I can't give CPR no no no it's the exact opposite.
That woman knew she was protected and could not be seen.
Because that's why should give CPR you let the -- -- and where they could bring a lawsuit in that case.
And that woman would've given CIR -- there is no lawsuit can anybody sue him for example that the lady who died.
Can Betty sue.
On the grounds that even though they signed the contract and the -- the tons somebody stood by and did not help and she suit now people absolutely not -- -- have a losses.
Does not have a loss why don't check because it was contractor to -- in California all -- -- to bring a suit and -- It's just don't all right -- the woman who refuse to give CP off the employee.
Can she -- for example full emotional distress because she.
And was forced by this policy to stand by a watch a woman don't know and I'm bringing it back to where -- -- agree with you at the start.
If lawsuits were allowed for things like this.
That woman might still be alive today she at least to have gotten CPR but when you keep the -- out.
Then people can have such a callous reckless disregard for the value of life that something like this happens.
That's a very interesting case mark and I look I'm not laughing yeah I'm just saying that's the direct opposite to the way I felt about this story when I first came into it it's it's it's a frustration and and mechanics -- one more thing to -- short.
I I regret that we are at a point in this country where so many people don't regard the value of human life.
In the value of human life whether it's in an unborn child or whether it's an an 86 year old geriatric grandmother should be -- much more highly and that that is -- winds and assign market -- you lol it is because withstand that if you.
-- -- of making the wrong movements get a making of a state owned we will be sued.
But trying to do the right thing you know we'll get have you -- there is a good samaritan policy in the law.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Best example the other morning I was coming into the studio very very early in his intra quarter of 4 in the morning.
-- young lacked standing outside I think he was drunk.
And he was look -- -- was in trouble it was raining.
I thought to myself and I should help people while -- around in the -- months from now on to -- ten -- -- -- I'll I'll help you.
That didn't you know want.
I really felt -- if -- approach this -- May be on -- I'm involving myself in a legal situation -- on lose.
Now that's a shameful thing for me to admit to quite frankly but I did it.
But number one you could never been sued for that it would have been and had a million acts of terror I didn't know I'm telling you and number two if you ever get sued over anything frivolous like that.
You call me free legal services.
Did you know what I mean -- jamaat.
But no what I'm coming little -- the other side of the -- it's just a two sided coin it's all -- wanna say the other side of the coin is we -- no you can't get suit.
That you're allowed to be callous and reckless in your behavior is a good point it really is a very very good point and we had a great show this morning by the way it was because your on this I don't know I've been watching -- this has been a -- Do not watch this show are missing good TV -- right -- I'm gonna -- --
