The nursing staff at this facility gave CPR to my mother who was established as a DO NOT RESUSCITATE!! They broke many bones in her chest and she was then placed on life support until I informed the hospital to remove her from it. They caused my mother an excruciating amount of unnecessary trauma and pain.
