Bakersfield police say their investigation is complete and no criminal statutes were violated in the controversial Glenwood Gardens 911 call last week, before 87-year-old Lorraine Bayless lost her life.
Bayless did not have a "Do not resuscitate" order when a nurse cited company policy and refused to perform CPR on Bayless in an independent living area of the assisted living facility.
There are also now conflicting statements from Glenwood Gardens and its parent company Brookdale Senior Living, based in Tennessee.
On Wednesday, Brookdale Senior Living sent 17 News a statement which reads, in part, "This incident resulted from a complete misunderstanding of our practice with regards to emergency medical care for our residents. Glenwood Gardens is conducting a full internal investigation, which we are fully supporting and the individual is on voluntary leave during the process."
However, last week a statement from Jeffrey Toomer, the executive director at Glenwood Gardens, contradicted that statement.
Toomer's statement read, in part, "In the event of a health emergency at this independent living community our practice is to immediately call emergency medical personnel for assistance and to wait with the individual needing attention until such personnel arrives. That is the protocol we followed."
When we called Brookdale Senior Living, the company wasn't clear on what the current medical care policy is or why the statement seemed to contradict earlier statements from the facility.
Brookdale says it's now conducting a company-wide review of its medical policies.
Glenwood Gardens says the nurse who was on that 911 call is on voluntary leave.
We've asked Brookdale Senior Living what voluntary leave means for her, but they have not responded to that question.
