ABC News: Ignored Psych Patient Dies on Hospital Floor

"Alan Aviles, the president of the Health and Hospital Corp., had already announced that six hospital employees, including staff members who oversee patient care and security, face disciplinary action for their lack of response. Two of the employees were fired, while four unionized staff members must go through termination proceedings."

One has to ask (don't we?) who is being served by these public and quasi-public institutions the patients (in this case, fliers, students, utility company customers, etc. in other cases) or the unions?
