Airport 'security' thugs can make you take off your shoes, feel you up in front of everyone, make you drink your baby's breast milk and steal your belongings.
Now I learn that hospitals are in the business of kicking people out of the country when the patients' financial status doesn't suit them. (via The Sideshow)
You might think that the people they decide to kick out of their hospital and the country are here illegally. Not so, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona is trying very hard to kick a very sick woman who is in the US legally out of the country and into a hospital that has agreed to take her in Honduras but that has made it clear cannot care for her properly. The patient has no family in Honduras, her family is here and she has lived here for more than 17 years.
Evidently St. Joseph's Hospital regularly kicks people out of their hospital and sends them to another country. About 8 a month. I don't know how may to places that can't care for them properly (is that called murder?) or how many of them against their will.
The family has taken the issue to court. The article isn't very clear but it doesn't sound like the court is much concerned about a patient's right not to be deported at a hospital's whim.
Whatever the case I wouldn't expect much compassion out of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
