From The Republic:
State investigators say a central Pennsylvania hospital didn’t adequately supervise a suicidal patient who walked out of the emergency room in paper scrubs shortly before she fatally threw herself into traffic.
The woman was taken to the hospital by police after they had to prevent her from jumping out a second-floor window at her home. She agreed to a voluntary mental health evaluation but soon disappeared from the hospital. She was struck and killed by a car on a nearby highway.
