Nursing staff laughs as World World II vet dies

An 11Alive investigation uncovered hidden camera video catching nursing home staff laughing while an elderly patient dies in front of them. The incident happened at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation in 2014, but the video was recently released as part of a lawsuit filed by the family.

Attorneys representing the Atlanta nursing home tried to prevent 11Alive from obtaining the video. They asked a DeKalb County judge to keep the video sealed and then attempted to appeal to the Georgia State Supreme Court. The judge ruled in favor of 11Alive and the nursing home eventually dropped its appeal to the state’s highest court.

The video includes almost six hours of video court deposition from a nursing supervisor explaining how she responded to the patient before she knew the hidden camera video existed. The video shows a completely different response.

The deceased patient is 89-year-old James Dempsey, a decorated World War II veteran from Woodstock, Georgia.

    Looks like a hate crime to me, the Feds need to get involved!

    Her nursing license should be pulled and ban her from ever practicing nursing again. She is not fit to care for anyone. One must wonder how many time has she done this in the past but no one had the foresight to video tape her…..Thank God this family did and put an end to her nursing days.

    These people involved need to be punished to the “fullest” extent of the law. In fact it should definitely include “capital punishment”. 89 years old and “THEY” decided he had lived long enough and they killed him by withholding the proper care and assistance he deserved. That is the bottom line here. “NOT A MISTAKE” as that lying, arrogant woman claims.
