This is an example of how harsh and uncaring the system can be. And is another example of "hospital dumping". Woman Dies of Stroke After Police Did Not Believe She Was Ill - YouTube A 60-year-old woman who had been in hospital apparently had been "dumped" outside the hospital and told to leave. She refused to leave because she felt like she was going to die and still needed medical attention. Police officers responded and threatened to haul the woman off to jail if she did not leave. In the video she looks like she was clearly in distress and could barely move or get up, but the responding officer believed it was all an act. The woman had broken her ankle and was in the middle of suffering from a stroke, an immediate life-threatening medical condition. The stroke was probably initiated by a blood clot that formed in the broken ankle and then moved towards her brain. If not immediately treated, a stroke can result in death or permanent brain damage. The woman had previously had a stroke 3 years before. "You guys are going to let me die," Lisa Edwards said, as she lied on the ground outside the hospital. "I'm going have a stroke." In the video, the woman can be heard repeatedly telling officers that she's having trouble breathing, as they tried to make the arrest. The officers clearly did not believe her and acted very disrespectful towards her, being completely dismissive of what she was saying. "Stop, okay, just stop, okay. We're not doing this. So we're going to put you back there. We're not doing this no more with you." "I'm not doing this with you, okay. This is the... Listen to me! ... This is the Lord's Day (Sunday), all I want to do is get me some cowpeas and oatmeal, NOT going to deal with your mess this morning. We've already spent too much time on you. You're going to get up here in this van or you're going to go to jail. We're done with you," one of the police officers sternly tells the woman. "I'm going to pass out," the woman says. "You're not going to pass out," responded the officer. The woman makes infantile noises trying to talk but seems to be having trouble talking. The officers eventually got her into the police vehicle, where she became unresponsive. "I don't know if she's faking it or what, but she’s not answering," an officer said. The woman was eventually brought back inside the hospital and placed on life support until her body finally died the next day. The woman had been discharged from the hospital wearing only hospital scrubs, despite the cold temperatures outside. You can tell in the video the woman is talking with a little bit of a funny accent and does not seem to be the most mentally coherent. This likely may have been caused by the stroke she was suffering, which ironically may have been a factor in the officers taking her claims less seriously. The woman did not have insurance, which was likely a factor why the hospital discharged her even though she did not want to leave, because they knew she would not have money to pay them. This happened right outside Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, Knoxville, Tennessee, February 5, 2023.
