Federally ordered changes have been made at San Francisco’s General Hospital following the death of a patient who was found in a stairwell at the hospital last October.

Recently released transcripts of phone calls at San Francisco General Hospital are raising questions about the attitude of those involved in the search for Lynne Spalding, who was found dead in a hospital stairwell in October.
