Baltimore Hospital Accused of Dumping Woman on Cold Street

Baltimore Hospital Accused of Dumping Woman on Cold Street

According to a University of Maryland spokesperson, a video that went viral across multiple social media platforms has sparked an intense controversy, making people question the quality of services patients received while committed to medical institutions. "Clearly she was in the hospital for a reason. No one would have believed me", Baraka said. "You try to get them to the best place possible, and that's not the bench in front of the hospital".

As of Friday morning, his post had more than 45,000 shares.

The hospital has pledged to hold the individuals involved accountable for the incident and promised to interview everyone who interacted with the patient, including the hospital workers shown in the video. It has been documented extensively in other places in the U.S., including in Los Angeles, where the practice was the subject of a 60 Minutes expose, ten years ago.

At the doorway, Baraka asked for a supervisor, demanding to know why hospital staffers were leaving her outside. I felt that. I'm like, 'come on, let's go over here. 'Oh hell no, not on my watch. "'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".

"Then you need to call the police", retorted Baraka.

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. He said he asked the arriving ambulance crew where they would take her, and they replied "back to the hospital". Speaking with reporters, Suntha also said Thursday there were no excuses for what happened to her.

WJZ spoke with the patient's mother, who is extremely distraught.

The former president of the Maryland Hospital Association told ABC2's Mallory Sofastaii previous year that it's not an increase in patients that's the problem, it's an increase in the type of patient flooding the health care system. She says her daughter is with her family and getting medical treatment, but not at the hospital from the video.

"She said her daughter had been missing", he said. He was walking by and saw guards wheeling her out. 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: '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.

"OK, fix it", Baraka said.

Amid the rush of public interest after the video, the head of the hospital thanked Baraka for filming the video.
