"sixty minutes" on hospital dump-outs (fwd)
" .. (CBS) The first rule in medicine is: do no harm. But doing harm is
precisely what some Los Angeles hospitals are being accused of when it comes to
patients who happen to be homeless.
As CNN's Anderson Cooper reports, the claim is that hospitals don't like
dealing with homeless patients, who are often uninsured and sometimes
unpleasant to treat. So they literally dump them on the streets of Skid Row,
even if the patients come from other places in Los Angeles, and are in no
condition to fend for themselves.
