HelpAmelia.com : Certified nurse assistant Amelia Mendoza, 52, of West Covina, was physically attacked by a patient while working at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena earlier this year. Amelia was examined in the hospitals Emergency Room and ordered back to work. After a second attack by the same dangerous patient, Huntington Hospital turned Amelia away from their in-house workers compensation clinic. They were “too busy” that day, and told her to come back tomorrow. But within hours, Amelia collapsed into a vegetative state, and has not recovered.
