  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in Nursing Homes

    Monday December 16, 2013
    Prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS), nursing homes must provide basic life support, including initiation of CPR, to a resident who experiences cardiac arrest (cessation of respirations and/or pulse) in accordance with that resident’s advance directives or in the absence of advance directives or a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order. CPR- certified staff must be available at all times.
