Patient who fell out of hospital bed is found dead


Fell Out of Hospital Bed in New York?  A lung cancer patient was recently admitted to New York Community Hospital in Brooklyn.  She was diagnosed with malnutrition, anemia and dehydration.  What happened next remains a mystery.

The woman’s son found her laying on the floor beside the bed.  She was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

While the New York City Medical Examiner’s office has required the hospital records, NY Community Hospital has thus far failed to produce the documentation.
