Woman falls in hospital, told to call ambulance - newspaper
You know how you fall and break your hip in the lobby of hospital but don’t worry about it because you think “at least I’m in a hospital”? That’s exactly what happened to 82-year-old Doreen Wallace.

Defying common sense, however, the staff at Niagara Falls’ Greater Niagara General Hospital did nearly everything in their power to prevent Wallace from getting treatment.

Firstly, they told her she would have to wait until an ambulance was called. Then, they kept her on the ground for 30 minutes without any assistance. Lastly, they wrapped her head — which was bleeding from the fall — in a dirty blanket, and had a security guard wipe away the blood with a paper towel.
