Baltimore hospital dumps woman in gown at a bus stop in the freezing cold

A Baltimore hospital is 'investigating' after a video emerged showing staff abandoning a woman outside in the freezing cold, wearing just her gown. The clip shows four security guards, one rolling a wheel chair, walking away from the alleged patient near a medical facility located near Mount Vernon. The hospital said it understands the 'shock and disappointment' many have felt after watching the video.

Experts call the practice 'patient dumping'. According to CBS News, the video maker, Imamu Baraka eventually calls the police for assistance. Medical units arrive and reportedly took the woman back to the same hospital.
