Now, let's review ... An elderly lady wandered from her room without any staff being aware and gets to the roof of Montefiore where she is locked out of the hospital and freezes to death. An employee is killed and others seriously injured when there were not adequate security systems in place at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic.
