(CNN) -- Police in Bakersfield, Calif., say they did not find any signs of "criminal misconduct" after a nurse at a senior living facility refused to perform CPR on a resident.
"He said the victim was surrounded by people and it was his impression that someone was doing something, someone would do something," said the victim’s son Ken Bausano. "As it turns out and as we found out later, no one was doing anything."
Bausano’s mother and father are both residents at Glenwood Gardens and Bausano’s father was just steps away when 87-year-old Lorainne Bayless collapsed last Tuesday.
What happened in the minutes after Bayless collapsed now has the senior living facility facing harsh criticism as highlighted by the frantic 911 call between an emergency dispatcher and the center’s resident services director.
It’s the center’s policy against helping that now has Bausano second guessing about his next visit.
"I hesitate to walk in knowing that if I have a cardiac arrest no one will do anything until someone with a badge walks in the door," Bausano said.
