Hollywood hospital sued over dumping its patient in ditch

By Margarita Snegireva. Suit accuses Hollywood Presbyterian of negligence in incident in which, witnesses say, a paraplegic man was left on skid row.

Civil rights attorneys on Thursday sued Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in connection with the alleged dumping of a paraplegic man on skid row last year.
The incident sparked nationwide outrage after The Times reported that the man crawled in the gutter in a soiled hospital gown while dragging a catheter bag. Witnesses told The Times that the van driver, Finece Mathis, ignored their pleas to stop.

Gabino Olvera, 42, sued the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center for negligence after it discharged him in February 2007, took him across town in a van and left him in a soiled hospital gown without a wheelchair in the heart of the city's homeless area.
