The story is going viral on social media, as it should.
A World War II veteran who is 89-years-old died in an Atlanta-based nursing home as he called for help from nurses who not only ignored his calls, but ended up laughing at him.
The 89-year-old, Jack Dempsey is shown in the hidden camera video helpless and calling for help from his bed at a nursing home in Atlanta. The camera was planted in his room by his family. It was released to the public by 11alive.com
The video includes testimony from the lead nurse who lied in a deposition about Dempsey’s death. She did not know the video recording existed when giving her deposition.
When asked if she tried to apply CPR, she said “yes.” But truth is she did not. And when confronted with the video she said it was an “honest mistake.”
In order to release the video for public viewing, 11alive had to get permission from the courts because the nursing home tried to keep it hidden from the public.
The story of Jack Dempsey is heartbreaking and infuriating, and to make it worse the nurses are still permitted to practice their careers in the health industry.
The video of Dempsey and the full story about what took place is available at 11Alive.
