A North Carolina woman says hospital security guards sent her son home in a taxi because he was “uncooperative” and “refusing to talk,” although he was dying or already dead.

A’Darrin Washington of Fayetteville died on Nov. 22, 2011, after he was discharged from Cumberland County Hospital.

His mother, Deborah Washington, filed suit against the hospital’s security provider, AlliedBarton Security Services, for loading her weak son, a lymphoma patient, into a taxi despite the expressed concern of at least two members of the hospital staff, Courthouse News Service reported.

A’Darrin suffered from a form of cancer known as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and had been a patient at the hospital for 10 years, the suit says.

He was admitted on Nov. 14 for pneumonia. After being treated for bacterial pneumonia for several days, tests showed that A’Darrin’s pneumonia was actually fungal. He had received the wrong medication for several days and his condition had deteriorated.

When doctors gave him the first dose of the correct medication on Nov. 21, they declared A’Darrin’s condition stable and prepared him for discharge.

A nurse, who is not a party to the suit, called for a security escort for A’Darrin because he was being “uncooperative.”

"(A) nurse called for security to escort Mr. Washington from his hospital bed to the lobby for discharge because Mr. Washington was allegedly 'uncooperative' and 'refusing to talk or move,'" the complaint states.

"Mr. Washington was unresponsive due to the fact that he was dying,” it says.

Two security officers took him to the lobby of the hospital, carried him out of his wheelchair, put him in a taxi, and strapped him in with a seatbelt. At least two members of the hospital staff allegedly expressed their concern, but A’Darrin was still sent away.

He was unconscious during the 45-minute ride home. When he arrived, his mother and family found him "unresponsive and cold to the touch.”

Authorities were called and A’Darrin's body was allegedly left in the taxi in the front yard for four hours while police investigated.

His mother is seeking compensatory and punitive damages for negligence, wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

This isn't the first time AlliedBarton Security has been in the headlines. An AlliedBarton security guard in Philadelphia was arrested for the shooting of a 21-year-old woman at an elevation subway station on Nov. 22. Caught on camera, police say, a gun inside the guard’s bag fired and a bullet hit the metal bench where the girl was sitting. Shrapnel hit the woman, Shirley Williams, in the face and arm.

"I was sitting there, all I heard was a 'boom' and my face started bleeding," Williams said.

The guard, who has not been named, stands there calming and walks away. He’s later seen getting on an eastbound train.

Oh hell no! What kind ish is that?!?

I hope mama gets PAID and all of those fools lose their jobs! How do you have security take someone on their deathbed and put them in a freakin taxi! That boy died alone in a cab instead of in bed with his family surrounding him.

The taxi driver should have refused them as well.

Screw everyone that was involved in this charade.

To have a taxi pull up and its "delivering" my dead child Oh I'm killing someone eff a lawsuit! 


BUT I do also have questions as to why wasn't anyone notified he was being discharged. I know he was an adult but still someone should have been notified? This leads me to more question but I'll let the mom grieve.

Oh the stories I could tell!

But, I'm gonna need to hear both sides of this story, so many questions!

I only ask, because I'm pretty sure I once put a patient in a cab knowing full well he would not make the 45 minute ride to his home, BUT: he left AMA, signed the papers, was in his right mind, and all he wanted to do was smoke! I sat outside 20 minutes with him, trying to convince him to return, and I told him over and over again, "YOU ARE GOING TO DIE IF YOU LEAVE!" He told me to eff off, he wanted to die on his own terms, not mine. After the fifth or eleventh time, I was like, alrighty then, peace out, told the cab driver to drive FAST, and strapped his ass in the backseat. So while it may seem like the hospital or security was at fault, we don't know what transpired, so. . .

Just be aware that it is about to get a heck of a lot worse! (thanks to the new laws taking effect on 1/1/14)

I wish his mother peace tho.

..it said that he wasn't talking and 'uncooperative' but if they had to carry him then to me it sounds like he was more like unresponsive
