The media blew this way out of proportion.

I think so too Professor.  Sad to say.

I have all the paperwork done and my kids all know and are in agreement.  I don't have anything in my car or the motorhome though.  Hmmm, a bracelet . . . I might look for one.

Looks like more solid 'details' and less emotion playing into some of these later stories. 
Sounds like in this case the woman that died may even have had a DNR request. 

One thing I see as 'good' coming out of this story is that this may make the general public realize that there are some places that will go to great lengths to provide a higher level of care and there are others that will provide the minimum requirements :-\ :-\ :-\

This story has more twists and turns than the River Raisin west of Dundee :o :o :o

Although it was apparent the woman did want CPR administered she DID NOT have a DNR according to the local fire department.  The family is only upset at all the news and now the 'nurse but not a nurse at the time' has been suspended for not following proper procedures :-\ :-\ :-\
