Logue Introduces CPR Bill

Third District Assemblyman Dan Logue has introduced legislation to require senior living facilities to begin CPR, even if it is against the company policy. Assemblyman Logue says it is a shame we have to make laws governing the giving of life saving measures by trained medical personnel.

The introduction of Assembly Bill 259 was prompted by an incident at a  senior facility in Bakersfield in February, where an 87 year old woman collapsed and an on-duty nurse was not allowed to perform CPR by her company policy. Assemblyman Logue says the woman  did not have a DNR, a order by the person and a doctor stating life saving methods should not be started.
