I just read this on CNN and it was quite shocking that such neglect and blatant disregard for human life exists out there in the Hospitals of our nation, so I thought I'd bring it over here to discuss this. Was this a conspiracy to kill the shizophrenic woman on purpose, so to not have to care for her anymore? Sounds crazy, but you read below and see the picture.

The Jamaican immigrant had been involuntarily admitted to Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, on June 18 for what the hospital described as "agitation and psychosis."

The security video, released earlier this month by the New York Civil Liberties Union, showed that the mother of six waited in a chair for nearly 24 hours before she fell on the floor on June 19.

An hour went by before a hospital employee nudged Green, 49, with her foot and summoned help.

The NYCLU alleged that hospital records were falsified to show that Green had been "sitting quietly in the waiting room" a little more than 10 minutes after she had stopped moving and 48 minutes after she slid to the floor.

Green's autopsy reveals that she died from pulmonary thromboemboli -- blood clots that formed in her legs and eventually made their way into her lungs, according to Ellen Borakove, the medical examiner's spokeswoman. The clots came from deep vein thrombosis, which complicated Green's chronic paranoid schizophrenia.

Picture: At first it looks like a nearly empty waiting room, then in the top right you will notice a dead lady laying on the floor.

So ... what the heck is going on?

Yeah, Ive seen this.
Its rather tragic.They could have easily saved her in fact if she new she had blood clots she could have taken some aspirin that would have thinned her blood.At least kept it pumping.
They could have injected her with warfarin which would have stopped the clots clotting the circulatory system temporarily.But they were to slow.
If she was a mentally ill person the chances are she had no clue what was wrong with her.The corporations had already made hundreds of thousands of dollars out of this person, no doubt, so the next stage was to make some money on the funeral.

The problem here is the same one we had in Hawaii. Psych patients are being dumped in the ERs around the country, and the ER can't keep them there under observation and in beds until they can get them where they need to be. The ER gets overwhelmed with patients to begin with, and then has to deal with psych patients that are dumped there. This is a sad case, but until something is done to limit this from happening it will probably happen again.

Our problem in Hawaii was that the mainland psych hospitals think that Hawaii is the perfect place to drop their patients, because it's warm there. So they get a one way ticket, and end up homeless living in parks there.

Dumping of psych patients yes.Its common all around the world as ive read.Because governments don't want to waste money on them.They will say in public they care about them but they really don't.
The fact remains though, that in western country's even psych patients get better treatment and care, than everyday sick people in many other under developed country's.
In under developed country's psych patients get thrown in a building with a bucket.And left to rot.

Well ..

Regardless, a simple shot of sedation would've put her under, and made her managable.

This here looks like they purposefully let her sit til she died or something. I mean it states that on the tape from the hospital that the same workers go by her numerous times, and one finally nudges her with their FOOT! 24hrs later, so as to look .. "is she dead yet?"

Just 1 little shot of synthetic valium, and lights out. Then she wakes up on the street somewhere. Now THAT would've been alot better than letting the poor thing DIE from BLOOTCLOTS from sitting too long. Jesus..

What I propose is dumping her, what they did was kill her.
