Nurses laugh as veteran dies begging for help

Hidden footage from 2014 shows the disturbing moment a group of nurses laughed as a World War II veteran repeatedly called for help and died.

The family of 89-year-old James Dempsey of Woodstock, Georgia, installed a hidden camera in his room at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center when he first moved in, fearing mistreatment.

The camera later captured the night he died.

The video showed Dempsey calling for help, even telling the nurses that he couldn't breathe at one point. It also showed nurses laughing as his breathing machine failed.

It's the people who don't recognize the racism within themselves that can be the most damaging because they don't see it.

When I read things like this I just wonder what is going on in the minds of those who do that? What were the nurses’ motives??? :oprah:

Sadly I know so many people in college that go into nursing just for the money, and don't have a passion for caring for others.

Poor man. :(

This is ***ing disgusting - whatever punishment the nurses as well as the nursing home got is not enough to atone for the way this man spent his final moments... They basically allowed him to suffer and die in agony - how are they are not prosecuted :saladga:

I agree with the comments saying this should be investigated as a hate crime... Apparently this is not uncommon in nursing homes, and that is beyond sad... Do they not realise they will grow old as well? You can't treat elderly people like garbage, especially if you're paid to take care of them...

I can’t believe what I just saw. Nurses are supposed to help you when you need it, and these nurses didn’t even do a god damn thing to help this WW2 veteran. I Hope the nurses who let this man died (who served for the US) better go to jail or get fired, because he served your country and you should treat him with respect (including everyone who is in a Hospital or Retirement Home).

As a future nurse and coming from a family filled with wonderful and selfless nurses (one of whom worked in a nursing home), I just can't comprehend this. :S

Same. So many people go into health care professions just for the money and not because they have a passion for it. It’s so disgusting. 

It's the people who don't recognize the racism within themselves that can be the most damaging because they don't see it.
