Imamu Baraka, identified in local reports as the person who sought to help the woman, told The Associated Press he was so angry he made a decision to record Tuesday night's events on cellphone video, fearing no one would believe him if he reported a woman being left at a bus stop like that. Baraka, who is listed as a mental health counselor in an online professional profile, attempts to speak to her, but she doesn't answer him. She was taken back to the hospital, he told HLN.

He added that the woman wasn't mistreated while in the hospital's care and that the incident was isolated and that hospital officials were working on an extensive internal review.

"'UMMC will be known for providing high value and compassionate care, improving health in Maryland and beyond, educating future health care leaders and discovering innovative ways to advance medicine worldwide, '" he wrote, quoting the medical center's vision.

The hospital has issued a statement and an apology, and said the incident is being investigated.

"You're telling me no doctor or nurse or social worker asked where she was going?"

Addressing the medical center directly, Baraka said, "You can do better".
