    911 tapes depict response to collapse and death of veteran at Albuquerque hospital

    Two calls were made while 71-year-old Jim Napoleon Garcia lay on the floor as an ambulance was called to take him to an emergency room 500 yards away.

    "There's a table of doctors sitting right next to him and none of them are doing s-," the woman continued.

    The 911 records indicate an ambulance arrived to aid Garcia 10.5 minutes after the emergency call. Hospital officials said it is VA policy to call 911, although the emergency response team will be called to nonresponsive patients in clinics and five other buildings on the campus, not including the cafeteria.
