Lawsuit filed against hospitals that dumped homeless disabled patients on the streets

A lawsuit has been filed against two California hospitals and a transportation service which claims that the defendants dumped patients in downtown Los Angeles. One patient was a paraplegic who las left crawling in a gutter without a wheelchair. The complaint alleged that he was “left to crawl away with his possessions in a bag clenched in his teeth.” Another man was homeless and a detoxifying alcoholic. More patients have probably been victims of this practice, but because of mental disorders or disabilities they often do not realize that they have been severely mistreated.
