Care at Native American Health Facilities Called 'Horrifying and Unacceptable' in Senate Hearing

 


One woman died after she was left on the floor of her hospital room, overdosed by poorly trained staff.

Others died in ambulances on long journeys to emergency rooms because local facilities were closed for being such a mess.

Witness after witness at a Senate hearing Wednesday begged the federal government to properly fund the neglected Indian Health Service, and even government officials in charge of the service said they were struggling to get the resources they need.
