Have you heard of the phrase “patient dumping”? Well, it’s a real thing and after I saw it, it’s quite disturbing and disgusting I might add!
How about person walking past a Baltimore hospital, saw hospital security guards wheel a patient to a bus stop, in freezing temperatures and left the patient there! The only thing the patient had on was a hospital gown! Ugh!
That is “patient dumping”.
And believe it or not, it happens around our country more than you think — it happens not only in Baltimore, but in larger cities, too like Los Angeles hospitals. A CBS report says “patient dumping” often happens to patients who are not insured or have other financial issues.
