Charges Filed Against Hospital Chain for Alleged Patient Dumping


Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said he hopes to stop what he and others call an "epidemic" of patient dumping on downtown LA's Skid Row with criminal and civil charges against Kaiser Permanente. Delgadillo has accused the hospital chain of false imprisonment and endangering a dependent adult when it left a 63-year-old woman on the streets of Skid Row in February.
