Interesting tid bit...
Our firm has guest internet and then is also a hot spot for a national service. I have that national service at home. I get better service at work using my home service than our firm guest service...go figure.
I believe what Quincy is saying is that few if any hospitals have computers in the rooms for patients to use to access the internet. So this poor, homeless person has either has a smart phone or a computer.
My experience is fairly recent, with two different "top" hospitals, one in New Jersey and one in Michigan. No computers in the rooms.
(My posts bumping spam off the main board.)

Children's hospitals often have computers in patient rooms for the kids to play on. They take extra steps to provide comfort and distraction for sick kids.
I visited CTU in the hospital, in Washington state, a few years ago. The only computer in her room was the one I brought with me. The computer in the visitor's lounge down the hall, however, was for anyone who wanted to use it.
Two things I am tired of typing: 1.) A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means that you were fired for a reason prohibited by law. 2.) The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding contract or CBA expressly says otherwise. If it does, the terms of the contract apply.
Are you Guys like way into Glennn Beck or something? Seriously. You can be homeless and have a smart phone. A cell phone is indispensable for work or or finding work and for communication. Smart phone cost less than housing like by a lot, by many times less even in places with low rents. And you'd still need a smart phone.
Negligent discharge is a real reason to pursue a med mal case. And the individual patient's situation matters in determining that. And if the patient didn't receive instructions for wound care after cranial surgery and there was subsequently an infection of bone, that's almost certainly an issue that needs to be looked into on it's face, whatever the economic status of the patient.
