PasserbyImamu Baraka says he was shocked as he watched security guards return to the University of Maryland Medical Center, leaving the woman and her belongings alone at a bus stop, reports People.
The workers, one of whom was pushing an empty wheelchair, ignored Baraka as he asked whether there was a supervisor available.
"They just left all her stuff out here". He is heard in the video asking the hospital's security officers several times why they put the woman out of the hospital. The guards walk away.
When Baraka started recording next, the woman could be seen staggering into the night and screaming. A guard turns around and offers a vague explanation: "Due to the circumstances of what it was".
Cheryl reportedly tried to file a missing persons report with police last month after Rebecca stopped talking with family members, and police told her during the process she was admitted to a Baltimore hospital. For a hospital to throw a woman half naked into the freezing cold is not what people from a hospital should be doing.
The situation left Baraka stunned, believing that, due to possible mental health issues, the hospital chose to discharge her instead of involuntarily committing her to a psych ward. The woman moans and cries and coughs, and her breath forms white clouds in the cold.
Baraka replies that the police ought to have been called if there was some problem. "Patient dumping" happens all across the country and violates a 1986 federal law that requires hospitals to discharge patients into a safe environment.
It wasn't clear what the circumstances were surrounding the woman's discharge into the night, at temperatures of approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

"'UMMC will be known for providing high value and compassionate care, improving health in Maryland and beyond, educating future health care leaders and discovering innovative ways to advance medicine worldwide, '" he wrote, quoting the medical center's vision. "You must do better".
"I share the community's shock and anger at what occurred", Suntha said.
The bystander called an ambulance, which picked up the woman.
