Hospital investigating discharge of patient in hospital gown

University of Maryland Medical Center officials respond after a woman is discharged wearing only a hospital gown

Baltimore bystander catches hospital staff dumping patient on the street

The hospital held a press conference Thursday evening in which it stated it had failed to demonstrate basic compassion for the patient.

A United States hospital has been caught in the act of what's known as "patient dumping".

"We do not believe what happened defines who we are as an organization", he said.

Tania Wise said she was in the emergency room at the same time as the woman and saw one interaction between the woman and a nurse that she called disturbing. "I still haven't watched all of the video". I became ... irritated and fearful for the young lady. "She was sitting on the floor".

Baraka says he waited for two hours after the ambulance picked her up to make sure they didn't bring her back to the bus stop. "You try to get them to the best place possible, and that's not the bench in front of the hospital". "'You ain't no child.' It was like she was disoriented a little bit, like she wasn't quite grasping what the lady was telling her".

A regard of the woman shows her not wearing any shoes, only purple socks, and her loosely tied hospital gown appears to be falling off.

Suntha, who cited the hospital's 136-year history of providing indigent care in Baltimore, said the woman's insurance status or ability to pay played no role in the decision to discharge her.

Some mental health experts, including, Adrienne Breidenstine of Behavioral Health System Baltimore, which oversees substance use and mental health treatment in the city, said the woman appears to be actively symptomatic.

Baraka replies that the police ought to have been called if there was some problem.

"It is absolutely unacceptable", Moran said.

"I didn't even know that it was my daughter initially", she said.

'This unfortunate event is not representative of our patient-centered mission, ' the statement said.

"No matter what 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 hospital statement said it's evaluating an appropriate response, "including the possibility of personnel action".

The incident happened on January 9 at the Emergency Department of University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus and video of it spread across Facebook.

For Wise, the solution is simple. I felt that. I'm like, 'come on, let's go over here. She deserves to get some type of help. He said she is now recovering with her family, the Sun reported. "Every person that I talked to at the hospital either hung up on me or told me to email the hospital, and that everyone was going to tell me the same thing". "And not that he owes it to me, he owes it to all of us".

"The hospital wasn't being helpful", Cheryl told CBS News.
