Mayor Promising Full Investigation After Body Is Found In Hospital Stairwell
San Francisco, California (CNN) San Francisco's mayor is promising a thorough review after a woman's body was discovered in a hospital stairwell.
"We are going to be conducting a thorough independent review of all of the security at hospital systems that secure the patients, secure the hospital employees themselves and look at all of the different systems that would affect this hospital top to bottom," Mayor Ed Lee said.
The investigation will also address hospital staff training and will include a full assessment of job duties.
The body of 57-year-old Lynne Spalding was discovered Tuesday in a stairwell at San Francisco General... 17 days after she disappeared from her hospital room.
She was admitted on September 19th for a bladder infection, and reported missing on September 21st.
