This brings back memories of what happened here in Los Angeles that lead to the closure of Martin Luther King Medical Center. It can happen anywhere and complacency is not only at facilities where the poor and mental are cared for, look back to the heparin events here in Los Angeles. Truly one sad story and the fact that people watched and offered no assistance. Are we sometimes so connected to our workflow that we are disconnected to the human race? One question that comes to mind. BD
NEW YORK - Video from a surveillance camera at a Brooklyn hospital shows a woman dying on the floor of a psychiatric emergency room while people nearby ignore her. The video was released Monday by lawyers suing Kings County Hospital alleging neglect and abuse of mental health patients at the facility. The video shows the 49-year-old woman keeling over and falling out of her chair on June 19 and lying facedown on the floor, then thrashing before going still. About an hour passed before someone realized what was happening and tried to help.
