New York City has agreed to pay $2 million to the family of a woman who died on the floor of the psychiatric ward at Kings County Hospital Center in June 2008 after waiting more than 24 hours to be treated. The city's Health and Hospitals Corporation accepted full responsibility for the death of the woman, and said it had taken steps to relieve crowding and increase the size of the staff to provide mental health services at the hospital.
