Patient Dies in ER and No-one Notices

This shocking vid has made the rounds over the past few weeks. At EverythingHealth I don't like to rant and rave but I do appreciate the ranting of other medical bloggers. Check out this great post by White Coat Rants about this woman dying on the floor of a hospital without anyone noticing. There are lots of pointing fingers and blame to go around, but perhaps cutting the funding to psych hospitals might play a role? His blog is worth a read.
