A hidden video from 2014 showed nurses laughing as a World War II veteran repeatedly called for help and died while in their care.
The family of James Dempsey, 89, of Woodstock, Ga., hid a camera in the late veterans room in the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center which captured the night he died.
The video showed the decorated WWII veteran repeatedly calling for help, saying he could not breathe. It also showed the nurses failing to take life-saving measures and laughing as they tried to start an oxygen machine.

They deserve prison time for negligence at the very minimum. I hope they rot in hell
I hope they have civil suits against them that cost a fortune to defend.
Can’t wait until they nationalize health care. They we laugh as we all die.
My daughter is a nurse. She is outraged over this story.
“Cant wait until they nationalize health care. They we laugh as we all die.”
They won’t laugh at me, my wife and I have made a pact, we don’t call 911 until we don’t feel a pulse. No need to hang around this hell hole any longer than necessary. :)
They settled the suit. Judge unsealed video
A related story says the two nurses’ licences have been revoked.
Anyone know how they hid the cam without nursing home knowing.
They should be charged. The negligence bordered on homicide.
Easily enough, I suspect. Nursing home residents’ rooms are often quite cluttered with their things, and I think it wouldn’t be difficult at all for family members to conceal a video camera.
In your house is different.
If you install in an item it seems like it could get moved a lot in a nursing home. I guess you could put it in a plant
But you have issues of electricity..etc
As a daughter of parents who both served in WWII. . . I call this cold blooded murder.
They are not even humans. May they each die while calling for help (that never arrives).
I wonder how they would have felt if he laughed when they needed him!
Nursing homes, for the most part, are the last stop before the grave which usually are rather short stays.
