New York City finds neglect and cover-up in patient's death
New York City investigators have admitted that the staff at a city-run hospital in Brooklyn failed to provide basic medical care to a psychiatric patient who died on a waiting room floor, and then tried to cover up their neglect. In a report released exactly one year after the death of patient Esmin Green in Kings County Hospital Center's psychiatric emergency room, the city's Department of Investigation said its review had found a "systemic failure" to care for Green.
