They did it again…

An 82-year-old woman died in a hospital in February after being refused admission by five other hospitals in Fukushima Prefecture, a local fire department said Friday.

The fire department asked five Koriyama hospitals a total of nine times to accept the woman. But the hospitals refused to accept her, citing lack of empty beds or doctors.
