6. While you certainly make valid points in how things "should"
happen... are you suggesting that someone who had had no CPR training and thus was left with the choice of depending on voice instructions from 911 should not attempt to do so? Are you (callously, if so, imo) blaming the good Samaritan?

Many public health departments could/would have intervened on her behalf to get the victim tested... I can't speak for Texas Dept. of Health or the local HD, but it is a pity the hospital did not at least inquire on her behalf. If the law prohibits even public health from requesting test of the victim (unlike in many or most states) then I guess we are seeing another typical example of Texas law.
