A woman lies on the ground dying from a perforated bowel. She is in pain, vomitting up blood and asking for help. Incredibly, this was happening in an emergency room. At the King-Harbor hospital in Los Angeles, this woman, her boyfriend and an unidentified person pleaded with the hospital for help. Their pleas for help were ignored. Calls were made to 911 requesting that an ambulance take the woman to another hospital. No help arrived. This is one of the worst case of medical malpractice that I ever read about it. Based on the facts set forth in the LA Times article, there should be an immediate criminal investigation opened into this woman’s tragic death.
