Missing California mom found dead

The body of 57 year old Lynn Spalding was discovered yesterday in a exterior hospital stairwell, 18 days after she was last seen. She was admitted to San Fransicio General on September 19th and vanished from her room a few days later.

Seriously. This woman's body was there the entire time and nobody noticed. How the hell do you just not check all the stairwells for a patient who was considered "confused due to medication". I feel just awful for her family.

You would think that they would've searched the entire hospital. I wonder why no one use the stairwell in 18 days.

In another article I read it stated they had searched the hospital. Yeah apparently not well enough, that poor woman. Makes you wonder how long she was there maybe trying to shout for help or if she was too weak to shout just laying there hoping someone would find her.

I thought the same thing OP.

How could the hospital claim to have done a thorough search yet she was in a stairwell.
