Woman dies in hospital waiting room, Kings County Hospital, Brooklyn, New York – failure to treat

July 5th, 2008

The level of treament in has reached new lows.  Esmin Green, 49, was waiting in the emergency room of psychiatric ward of Kings County Hospital, in Brooklyn, New York when she collapsed and was left there for over one hour to die.  The video tape of the emergency room depicts multiple employees of the hospital doing absolutely nothing, despite witnessing her collapse to the floor.  Clearly, legal action needs to be taken to bring the city to justice and prevent this failure to treat and complete disregard for human life from happening again.

As all concerned about the dismal conditions and care of this hospital now know Esmin Green died because of Kings County Hospitals failure to treat her.  Amazingly, it is reported that Esmin Green’s medical records point to the possibility that some employees may have tried to cover up the incident.  Apparently the dismal employees involved in that alleged cover up forgot that the waiting room was video taped.  To see the shocking video tape please visit . 

You can also see the shocking video on youtube at

Kings County Hospital is a city run hospital run by the .  A lawsuit was filed a year ago by a state agency, the and the calling the psychiatric ward of Kings County Hospital “a chamber of filth, decay, indifference and danger.”  This is a shocking display of the failure to treat a patient and the complete disregard for this fragile human condition that Esmin Green was unfortunate enough to be afflicted with.

I for one am glad that this video has aired.  Finally, the public will see the true, sub-human conditions that sick patients have to endure by this city run hospital and it’s blatant disregard for human decency and life.  Choosing the right attorney for this case is of paramount importance to teach the city and Kings County Hospital that this will not be tolerated and will stop now in the name of all that is righteous and just.  If anyone has any legal questions regarding this shameful incident please do not hesitate to contact 1(800)WE-FIGHT and speak to a lawyer for free.
