A few years ago, Medicare tried to prohibit physicians from discharging a patient for any reason, up to and including physical attacks on physicians and staff.
Just as the doctors were required to hire translators at the doctor’s expense, they would be required to hire security at the doctor’s expense.
They backed off then, when they physicians called them on it. Not surprised they would try again.
Five hours is a pretty long time to have some nut case roaming around acting freaky and dangerous.
If anything they should ping the hospital for letting it go on that long. What if he’d injured an employee?
