Baltimore bystander catches hospital staff dumping patient on the street
Thank you for posting.
Relatives of the 22-year-old woman told local news affiliate WBAL that she suffers from schizophrenia. The woman could barely stand on her feet and seemed unable to talk. As she approaches the cold bench, the thin gown exposes her bare skin.
The hospital has issued a statement and an apology, and said the incident is being investigated. Mental health expert Adrienne Breidenstine of Behavioral Health System in Baltimoretold The Baltimore Sun she thought the woman might be actively symptomatic, from seeing the video.
Baraka calls 911, and rescue workers arrive quickly.
They maintained that its doctors and nurses gave her adequate care but said they had "failed" to demonstrate "compassion". "She was. medically discharged".
The issue of people being put out of hospitals is a nationwide issue called "hospital dumping".
A 2007 60 Minutes investigation revealed this is a common practice called "patient dumping". Patient dumping is apparently most often seen with patients who are homeless or who can not afford to pay for care. The hospital admitted no wrongdoing.
'She's in the heart of downtown Baltimore, with no clothing on. The hospital paid $1 million to settle that case.
Baraka then approaches the patient who appears to suffer from a head wound. Two other officers watched as she fell onto the sidewalk. Sparking widespread outrage, the footage has many questioning the hospital's policies. The reason I did this is to protect her and to protect me, ' he said. "They knew I was taping and they didn't even look back".
The University of Maryland Medical Center's top executive, Dr. Mohan Suntha, apologized for what happened to the patient Thursday.
Toronto schoolgirl attacked, hijab cut with scissors
A spokesperson for the Toronto District School Board said the school where the student belongs is multicultural and inclusive. The siblings said he had black hair with straight bangs to the eyebrows, a thin mustache and black prescription glasses.
"This incident is very visual because it happened on camera", Breidenstine said.
Officials said they were in "shock and disappointment" by the video. "We have to protect our employees in those cases".
Baraka, a psychotherapist, lamented the hospital's treatment of her. This is disgusting that they would just leave her unattended on a bus stop half naked.
"I just witnessed this with my own eyes", Baraka wrote in a Facebook post. I became ... irritated and fearful for the young lady.
"So y'all just gonna leave this lady out here with no clothes on?" Baraka asks, noting the temperatures were in the 30s.
One guard replied "Those are the circumstances of what it was". When asked, one of them identifies himself as a supervisor. But she does scream, and her breath condenses in the cold air in front of her. The temperature outside was below freezing, and according to the video posted on YouTube, the hospital staff involved refused to answer any questions.
The University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus says it "failed to fulfill our mission" after a video surfaced of a patient being discharged in cold weather wearing only a gown. You can do better.
Addressing the medical center directly, Baraka said, "You can do better".
"The hospital statement said it's evaluating an appropriate response, "including the possibility of personnel action".
"I share the community's shock and anger at what occurred", he said, although shock and anger haven't ended patient dumping in the past. "As he got close enough, I saw it was her and I got hysterical because in that moment, it was sheer fear that my daughter was going to die".
