Cabbie Disappears in Jamaica Hospital for Days

The story of a cabbie whose identity got recorded wrong when he was taken into Jamaica Hospital after police found him unconscious with a head wound makes a great case for memorizing your emergency contact numbers. Or better hospital record keeping. Or both. Israel Nunez spent six days in the hospital, unable to call his wife (whose number he couldn’t remember), while people searching for him couldn’t reach him because the hospital had taken his name down as Daniel.
