Independent Report Finds L.A. Hospital Negligent

Los Angeles, CA – The findings of an independent investigative report concluded that Martin Luther King-Harbor Hospital was negligent in the death of homeless Angeleno, Edith Rodriguez. Rodriguez died on the hospital floor, suffering a perforated bowel. She had been arrested and detained for a violation of parole, and was summarily ignored by nurses and cleverly avoided by the janitor who mopped the floor around her as she lay in agony.

The report stated that Ms. Rodriguez could have lived if she had received appropriate medical treatment, especially if such treatment had been granted soon after her detention. Not only that, but she had been in the hospital for fourteen hours the day before, and at least five other times in the previous month. Had Ms. Rodriguez been properly diagnosed the day before, her death could have been avoided.
