IB readers may recall our story last summer recounting the (tragic) misadventures of Martin Luther King Hospital in California. There a woman was left writhing in pain, vomiting up blood and moaning in sheer agony while the ER staff did nothing to help.
Well, this unconscionable behavior is apparently not the exclusive province of the West Coast:
"Video from a surveillance camera at a Brooklyn hospital shows a woman dying on the floor of a psychiatric emergency room while staffers initially ignore her."
The good news is that a handful of staffers were canned. The bad news is that this facility, like Grady in Atlanta, is run by the (local) gummint (as was the aforementioned MLK facility in Los Angeles). Again, I keep wondering why anyone would want to turn our entire health care system over to these folks.
