Florida Woman Denied Healthcare After Arriving In Ambulance. While Pleading For Her Life She Is Hauled Out Of Hospital By Police, Dies Outside Hospital Door
In a twist of fate, Sarah Palin has been vindicated for the “death panels” remark she made as ObamaCare was being pushed on the US public. Now 57 year old Barbara Dawson died just feet from the hospital doors when she was forcibly removed after a government official told her she was not accepted for anymore healthcare under ObamaCare rules. No reason was given other than she was denied.
“You Either Walk Out Of Here Peacefully Or I Can Take You Out Of Here!”
According to CBS News, the hospital where a black woman died after she was forcibly removed from the emergency room by a white police officer was cited for 10 “deficiencies,” including failing to properly examine the woman when she complained of difficulty breathing, state health officials said.
The review was prompted by the death of Barbara Dawson, a 57-year-old woman who was treated in the hospital emergency room. The woman refused to leave when she was discharged because she didn’t think she was okay. Dawson said she couldn’t breath and begged the officer not to take her oxygen mask.
She was then handcuffed by Blountstown Police Officer John Tadlock and collapsed when he tried to put her in a patrol car. She died about 90 minutes later.
Elizabeth Dudek, the secretary for Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration, said Friday the violations at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital in Blountstown were “egregious.”
The hospital must submit correction plans by next Friday and if the problems are not fixed it could be suspended from the Medicaid program. The 25-bed facility is also facing fines that could total $100,000.
Hospital CEO Ruth Attaway told CBS affiliate WCTV that the hospital has started to take steps to fix the problems, especially involving the emergency room. Three hospital staffers were placed on unpaid administrative leave and a paramedic who was working in the ER that night has resigned.
“Yes it was a negative report but we’ll use it as a springboard. From this we will shore up our defenses. We will correct the issues that are out there and we will come out of this better than ever before,” Attaway said.
