“Death due to neglect…American Health care”

so I came across a blog post about a woman named Anna Brown who died Monday March 26th in Missouri jail cell after St.Mary’s Hospital in Richmond heights Missouri refused her medical treatment after she came into the hospital complaining about excruciating ankle pain. It turns out that a sprained ankle Brown suffered weeks prior had actually caused blot clots in here legs which traveled through her body and eventually into her heart. Brown was arrested at St. Mary’s hospital after she refused to leave the hospital until someone gave her medical attention because she was ion so much pain that she could not stand and had forced her to be bound to a wheelchair. Police showed up at St. Mary’s hospital and arrested Brown on site and booked her on trespassing charges and drug brown from the squad car to her jail cell where she cried in pain as she died.  Now to me this is beyond black vs white, this issue is about a color that is much more powerful…green. Brown was technically homeless as she was going through some life issues, and she was in a court battle to regain custody of her children, but as her records sated she was not a drug addict, she was simply stuck in a very tough financial and metal state. brown however was a medicare recipient but as we know in America that is simply not enough if you want a hospital to save your life. Once again America shows it’s true colors and reminds us that if you can’t afford health care…you’re probably going to die. This is a sad fact of living in this country and it is one that must change. Below is an article from a St. Louis newspaper fulling detailing the events of the case and the life history of Anna Brown so that you can get a complete image of the story and formulate your own opinion.
