Baltimore bystander catches hospital staff dumping patient on the street

Baltimore bystander catches hospital staff dumping patient on the street

While on campus, Baraka noticed a woman dressed in white, hospital gown was sitting all by herself in an empty bus station, apparently waiting for something or someone. Her belongings are packed in plastic bags that have also been placed at the bus stop.

"I am of the opinion, my own personal opinion, that this in some way is a norm", Baraka said. "And what I'm clear about is that there was a human being who needed help in that moment".

"We've actually seen an 18 percent increase in mental health and substance use-related emergency visits when other emergency department visits are going down", said Carmela Coyle, the former president and CEO of the Maryland Hospital Association.

Earlier, the center said in a prepared statement that the incident was "not representative of our patient-centered mission". "While there are many circumstances of this patient's case that we can not address publicly, in the end we clearly failed to fulfill our mission with this patient, no matter the circumstances of her case or the quality of the clinical care we provided in the hospital (which is not depicted in the video)".

Baraka's Facebook posts about the incident, published early Wednesday morning, have nearly 40,000 shares combined and thousands of comments expressing disbelief.

"[We] share the shock and disappointment of many who have viewed the video", a spokesperson said.

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen sues BuzzFeed for publishing Russian Federation dossier
Trump has said he expects Mueller to be fair to him and that he and his campaign never colluded with the Russian government. That included a claim that Cohen had travelled to Prague for secret meetings with a Russian official.

Recalled Baraka, "I said, 'Are you kidding me, they just dumped her on the curb"'.

"Then you all need to call the police", Baraka replied. He also asks to speak to a supervisor. He said he went and asked a security guard outside the hospital for a supervisor and was told "I am the supervisor".

Baraka, who says he works as a psychotherapist in the Baltimore area, acknowledges the woman could have been "unruly", and that one of the men who dropped her off seemed to imply as much. She screams and moves her hands around but doesn't talk.

Baraka's video and Facebook posts rallied quite a lot a people and, very soon, an official answer came from the Maryland University Medical System's board. " 'UMMC will be known for providing high value and compassionate care, improving health in Maryland and beyond, educating future health care leaders and discovering innovative ways to advance medicine worldwide.' You can do better. You must do better".

Baraka did not respond to multiple requests for comment or post an update on his Facebook page, but he told The Baltimore Sun he had just left his office across the street when he came upon the scene and began filming.

"We take full responsibility for this failure", Suntha said and added that the hospital did not provide "basic humanity and compassion".
