Whom do we sue?

Came across a bizarre scenario today morning..There were few youngmen,police men and our security personnel.A man who suffered a massive heart attack yesterday night was taken to a local nursing home.They brought him to our emergency when nothing much was left but still the doctor on call who is bound to do the CPR,did it.Unfortunately he died,Now the relatives were fighteing with the hospital that why did the doctor try to save the person and they won't make the payment for the medicines etc used.
It is a lost battle for us doctors
If they do a CPR they are still at fault as that increases cost on an almost dead person.If they don't do then obviously they are ' Criminals'
