This is indeed a sad story and it was all captured on tape.  The hospital already has huge issues on it's doorsteps and this is not going to helpInquiry matters.  Complacency?  Humanity?    BD

County officials express dismay at the events surrounding the recent controversial death at King-Harbor hospital. One nurse has resigned. 

In the emergency room at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital, Edith Isabel Rodriguez was seen as a complainer.
Aside from one patient who briefly checked on her condition, no one helped her. A janitor cleaned the floor around her as if she were a piece of furniture. A closed-circuit camera captured everyone's apparent indifference.

According to preliminary coroner's findings, the cause was a perforated large bowel, which caused an infection. Experts say the condition can bring about death fairly suddenly.

"Where was their heart? Where was their humanity? … When Jose came in, everybody was just sitting, looking. Where were they?"
