You cannot run a code blue in the nursing home, she should have started CPR and called 911. It's unfortunate that many times its new nurses on the night shifts and have lack of support from other nurses or RNs on the shift.

Let's not go over board!! No amount of training can prepare someone for that. That someone was probably young and is going to have to live with that. I love Oak Hills and appreciate all the do for our family.

Obviously they have plans in place to address this issue, and we're not seeing articles like this everyday. Sounds to me like they have addressed it and learned from it.

There's no room for panic in nursing/health care. Maybe Code Blue drills should have been in place before this incident...
