    These people need to have some legal action taken out on them, this is unacceptable.

    Apparently her family lives out of the country, but the doctor who saw her on the floor got fired. They need to fire the rest of the staff who saw her and did nothing.

    I`m not surprised at all. They have hospitals that refuse treatment to homeless people with broken bones, that just drop them off in a taxi still in their smocks and with IVs still hanging off of them.

    It`s a real shame when you live in a country that would let someone die at the hospital doors because they don`t have insurance or some sh-t. A real shame.
    And I hope all those people were fired, that is despicable.

    Yeah..your an a$$hole Icantthink41..She was a "mental patient".

    Acctually its a$$hats like you that are a drag on society. She obviously couldnt help herself or her illness. Whats your excuse?

    Poor lady.. How can someone ignore someone else in distress? Sickening!
    We had a case her recently where a scumbag urinated on a collapsed woman just to post a video on youtube..she was having a heart attack + died!
    He`s been sent to prison for a long time..
    Makes me sick that people no longer care about other people!

    I can`t believe that the guards and nurse weren`t fired on the spot. The doctor was, they should be too. If the guards would`ve done something, she might`ve lived. The nurse...maybe. She shouldn`t have kicked her, but at least she did something.

    my opinion from a medical standpoint is, it is probably very understaffed and there is not enough help around especially at the early hours of the morning, usually thats shift change. second, if I saw a woman crump over and become unresponcsive, it is my civil duty to respond to that as a medical emergency, and call a CODE BLUE. the second you see someone down, you should grab a crash cart. Third, why did the "doctor" just look at the patient and not see if she was breathing? This is a horrible incident, but on behalf of most decent hospitals, please don`t feel people are like this all over the country. I certainly would never leave a patient down. It`s just wrong

    well i pretty sure the reason is because in the video they said her family was poor so hospital being apart of goverment said "ya she poor she not worth saving because we wont get anything out of this" so they did poo all.

    It reminde me of micheal moores sicko but instead of drugging them and putting them in taxy and bringing them to random street corner they just let them die.

    If I see someone with a flat tire, I pull over, let alone if they are dying! It doesn`t take much effort to call a nurse. The only person that did anything was the nurse, who kicked the body! |-( I wonder how they got the film though? I can`t imagine the hospital would give it up willingly.

    I`m going to take a wild guess and say that the person who finally called for help is probably the same person who helped leak the tape. I can`t see any of those apathetic bastards giving it up willingly. Hell, one of the guards was to lazy to even get out of the chair.

    This maybe hateful but I think I know what happened here, not that it`s right. In the phyc ward the staff is probably use to people coming in and throwing themselves on the floor to get attention or just because they felt like it at the time. It seems like they made the mistake of thinking this is just another patient on the floor for no reason. Again, not that it`s right, but if you see it happen numerous times it starts to become common place.

    For those of you who are wondering what might have been going through the staffers mind, read this article:
    Bystander Apathy

    It`s not that people don`t want to help, it`s just that with the slightest excuse (like people falling on the ground all the time, like spacetiger said) people won`t help someone in need.

    Hospitals always make you wait way too long!
    Even when they really aren`t busy.
    I broke my knee once and after they made me wait in the waiting room for about an hour they finally seated me in a bed where they made me wait for another two hours with the incredible pain.
    When I finally got a doctor he just told me I broke my knee, gave me some crutches, and told me to see another doctor.

    We learned in Psychology that if there are alot of people and they witness a crime/someone needing help, then no one will help because everyone assumes someone else will do it.

    However, my friend has a heart condition that makes him faint sometimes, and one time we were jogging down the street and he passed out, but a bunch of people came over to help, and even stopped their cars and got out.

    People aren`t any worse than they were before, there are just more ways to show an uncaring nature for others and the media allows stories to be spread more often and further. 100 years ago you`d find just as many people that wouldn`t do anything if they saw someone drop dead.

    This story really is disgusting and wrong.

    Hospitals really do need to be sorted, I had to take a friend to A&E on Friday as he got Hydrochloric acid in his eye....you know....burning his eye and they told him to sit down and wait, when all they needed to do was give him something to wash it out with. That kinda annoyed me.

    Hospitals can be pretty bad.
    I was just in the ER of one a few days ago. The staff all paced around like they had nothing better to do while the patients just sat in their rooms waiting to be treated for hours on end.

    The one from this video should be shut down or put under new management or something. Absolutely disgusting. Just because you know you`re going to lose a patient every now and then doesn`t mean you can just let a dying woman lay there without treatment. And weren`t there guards monitoring the cameras? What the Hell...

    It isn`t just Americans who are terrible like this. All of humanity is dark and twisted at its core. Humans are sick beasts, and we shouldn`t pretend otherwise.

    This is a perfect example of the Kitty Genovese effect...which exactly outlines how cruel and passively malicious humans can be.

    I hope i never ever become that ignorant like most people who just walk by things like that...
    Has anyone seen that thing some news ppl did where they had people pretend to kidnap kids and the kids would scream and pretend theyre getting kidnapped and like no one helped out cept for some gangster people or something like that?

    That is absolutely devestating. How could all those people that were sitting there and that checked on her not do anything? That woman that just kicked her should be smacked...she could have at least bent down to check her pulse rather than inhumanely kicking her.

    There is a syndrome (I forgot the name) that is just like this. People see horrible things happen and do nothing. It was named after a specific incident where a woman was killed in front of something like 30 witnesses.

    Oh c`mon like this is news ? There have been people left to die in whatever horrible act there was going on. And suddenly from NOW ON people are bad ? I think she wasn`t making noise or something, seriously how can you judge that report ? We have NO CLUE what goes on in such a hospital, maybe people lie more often on the ground. Ofcours this shouldn`t happen but I doubt they did it because they wanted to have her dead.

    If someone is on the floor dying you don`t kick them and hope they wake up, you help them.
    And why didn`t the patients do anything? They just sat there and watched!

    And this is irrelevant to the death of that poor woman...

    I dont think the apathy theory that everyone is talking about applies here. Its not like they were strangers sitting around a bus stop. It is an ER. Its the peoples job to help those in the ER, regardless of the situation. And now they lost their jobs, which is good. But none of them will learn anything from the situation i bet. As for the nurse, she might have checked the person, but she checked her by kicking her like she was an animal.

    I ODed a few years ago and waited six hours to be seen by a doctor who stated I should stay for testing. I yelled at him for a bit, saying I wanted to go home, and he just said "Well if you think you`re gonna be okay, go home." That 3 minute conversation took six hours. >_<
    But this video here is dispicable. How can people who WORK there not do anything?

    Shut up.

    This was pretty terrible, but it sadly happens all of the time. Last summer I was in the hospital with a kidney infection and the IV punctured past my vein. I kept trying to get a nurse to help me... 15 minutes later, one came and asked me what I was crying about. She came back an hour later to change my IV... it had been pumping straight into my arm the entire time. Not deadly, but many hospitals just don`t care anymore.

    llsn : you seem to me to be a far worse waste of space than this poor woman ever was. I can`t help hoping that one day you will be in need of some sympathy and help, and that someone will simply look disdainfully at you and say that you deserve to be dead. Undoubtedly you are too perfect and useful to the world to ever imagine being vulnerable or in need of help. Btw you say you`re a christian? Interesting, i need to revise my gospels and see where the bit about leaving ill people to die is.

    To be completely honest- if I were in that situation as a citizen in the same room, I would have had NO idea what to do or even what to expect given that it`s a mental hospital. I probably would have assumed that the woman was just dratin` mental. On the other hand, I am not a doctor nor a professional of any kind. x.x They should have known what to do.
