PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A Charlotte County nursing home is under investigation.
A complaint says staff at Signature Healthcare of Port Charlotte failed to perform CPR on a man, which resulted in his death.
Signature Healthcare is now on Florida's Nursing Home Watch List, meaning it does not mean standards of care.
In a 75-page report from the state, a man identified as "Resident #282" died at the nursing home on June 7.
The report says workers never performed CPR when they found him not breathing, with no pulse, in his bed.
Signature Healthcare's policy requires staff to administer CPR on every resident, unless that resident has requested otherwise, in writing.
Resident 282 wanted to live, his daughter told investigators.
"Daddy would joke aboue it and say, if I'm going to die, he wanted everything done for him that could be done," she said.
The nursing home's medical director told investigators the resident was a "sick person who should have been a Do Not Resuscitate."
Doctors said the man was quadraplegic and suffered from several ailments, including diabetes, deep vein thrombosis and sepsis.
The medical director still admitted that the home's poliy was broken.
Three nurses were fired as part of the investigation.
Signature Healthcare said it would also re-train its staff on proper CPR protocol.
