Baltimore hospital probes release of thinly clad patient in cold

Imamu Baraka, a psychotherapist who has an office across the street from the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus, told The Associated Press he was so angry at the woman's treatment that he chose to record Tuesday night's events on cellphone video, fearing no one would believe him if he reported a patient being left at a bus stop like that on a cold January night.

Clough added: "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)".

The woman is dressed in a gown and socks with a hospital mask around her neck, and her belongings are packed in bags placed at the bus stop.

Her street clothes were stuffed in plastic bags and dropped at an open-air bus stop. He proceeds to ask the woman if she is OK - she appears to be unable to speak and begins to sob loudly.

The man who posted the video said it was just 30 degrees out, and challenged hospital staff. She's getting the treatment that she needs. The woman is now safe with family and being well taken care of, he said.

The mother of the young woman has not immediately responded to AP requests seeking comment. He said he went and asked a security guard outside the hospital for a supervisor and was told "I am the supervisor". Of those who brought her outdoors, he said: "I asked them three times, I asked them specifically, 'Are you going to leave this lady out here like this?' They kept walking".

Baraka said that he stopped videotaping at some point to call 911 and an ambulance crew came and took the woman back into the hospital.

That's exactly where she went. The security staff of University of Maryland Medical Centre in Baltimore were recorded dumping a patient near the bus stop.

A hospital in the United States has been caught dumping an ill patient in the middle of the night on a roadside in freezing cold.

Florida House passes plan to bar 'sanctuary cities'
Or perhaps the bill is meant to help people to run for higher office? The bill would require complying with U.S. The legislation heads to the Florida Senate , where it's not clear if there is support there to pass it.

No further information about the patient or her care was available, Clough said.

"They failed that simple test".

According to Dr. Suntha, the incident is now under an internal investigation and review of discharge policies.

"University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus (UMMC) as a Doctor of Healthcare Administration (DHA) student - may I remind you of the importance of the VISION of your MEDICAL CENTER", he wrote.

Maryland's Office of Healthcare Quality is conducting an investigation.

Said Suntha, "We do not believe that what occurred Tuesday night in any way defines who we are as an organization".

"We are going to talk again, in person, after all the bigness of this sort of calms down".

"OK, fix it", Baraka said.
