Florida hospital accused of deporting patient

AP/Miami Herald, July 9, 2009
A South Florida hospital is being sued for allegedly deporting a Guatemalan patient back to his native country for not paying his bills. Relatives of Luis Alberto Jimenez accuse Martin Memorial Medical Center of sending him back to Guatemala without telling them after he racked up more than $2 million in medical costs. The 37-year-old lacked insurance and wasn't eligible for Medicaid because he was in the U.S. illegally.
