My own grandfather died because of hospital negligence, so this story really boils my blood.
I first saw this on CNN and was completely appalled by it. How can people, in a hospital, leave a poor woman to die, on the floor, rolling in her own
vomit and blood that she regurgitated, and do absolutely nothing?? What kind of people have we become?
The whole thing was caught on tape too, but for some reason, cant be shown on television just yet. But, a man who saw the video was interviewed on
CNN, and he said that at least 12 doctors, nurses, and other people, walked right by her, didnt do nothing.
The most appalling fact about this whole case, is that the janitor was even videotaped cleaning up the vomit and the blood from the ground, as the
woman was lying there, he didnt even try to help her. Oh yea, he did a great job cleaning up the vomit and such, but he wouldnt even help the poor
woman who was rolling around in it, dying?? This is absolutely, positively, discusting.
But, not everyone is gutless. There were 2 people who called 911, to try and get help for the woman because obviously no one in the hospital wanted to
help, and the dispatcher said very rudely "This is not an emergency, your at a hospital", the woman said "of course this is an emergency, someones
dying"...."well you are where you need to be"...the woman said "but they arent helping her"....the dispatcher said "thats not my problem, this
line is for criminal emergencies, and theres nothing criminal here, so dont call" I mean it was a total lack of honor and duty on behalf of this
All these variables caused the death of a poor woman, and I sure as hell hope criminal charges are brought against the dispatcher, and the doctors and
nurses at the hospital, they were indirectly responsible in the death of a person, and need to be held accountable.
