Sisters Christina, left, and Kimberly Rodriguez embrace at the funeral Tuesday of their mother, Edith Isabel Rodriguez, in Pico Rivera. She died May 9 at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital of a perforated bowel after writhing in pain for 45 minutes on the floor of the emergency room as hospital staff members ignored her. The incident, caught on videotape and in transcripts of 911 calls made by witnesses pleading with sheriff's dispatchers for help, has sparked renewed scrutiny of the troubled hospital.
