Hospital to be sued in ER lobby death

The family of the woman who died while waiting in a hospital emergency room has indicated its intent to file a wrongful death suit against the hospital. The 43 year old woman died of a perforated bowel, vomiting blood and suffering pain for 45 minutes in the hospital’s emergency room without ever getting treated. The woman’s boyfriend even called 911 in an attempt to get immediate medical attention. A subsequent 911 call then tried unsuccessfully to get an ambulance to take the woman to another hotel. The 911 tapes further show that the staff at the emergency room did nothing but watch as the woman slowly bled to death. The hospital had a record of failing to provide care and was under investigation at the time of the incident.
