The mother of Mexican national Fernando Dominguez-Valivia, 58, who died of multi organ failure caused by pneumonia has sued Geo Group, which runs an immigrant detention center in Adelanto with medical negligence. The court records show that an oversight committee from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had found “egregious errors” in the treatment of the inmate.
This is an inmate!
This is incredible. Many people are upset that rapists and criminal thugs receive better medical care than working Americans. Obamacare has crushed the hopes and dreams of millions of Americans.
According to the report there was a failure to perform a proper physical examination in response to the symptoms and complaints, a failure to pursue records for continuity of medical care, and also failure to transfer the patient to another medical facility in a timely manner. The committee said it was of the opinion that the death of the detainee was preventable and the level of medical care he received was unacceptable. Well, many people believe if you want outstanding medical care you should contribute to society not take from it.

This can include not conducting the right tests or not prescribing the right treatment.
