NEW YORK -- 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 49-year-old psychiatric patient laid unattended on the floor at Kings County Hospital for almost an hour before a nurse kicked her to see if she would respond, reported New York television station WNBC.
During that time, two hospital security guards apparently saw her but didn't do anything to help. The first walked by, and the second didn't rise from his chair until about 10 minutes later.
The tape shows a doctor walking by as well. He apparently looked at the woman but kept going.

I cut my fingers off once and when I asked the doctor for something to relieve the pain he told me "Life's a b*tch, deal with it." And I am not kidding. If I wouldn't have been in immense pain, I would have smacked the [SNIP] out of him.
Another incident I had was when I was 16 and I had a suicide attempt. I was in the emergency room getting my stomach pumped and about 6 workers were standing around me cracking jokes at me.
Hospitals suck. I hate them.
