SAN FRANCISCO, CA — The body of a woman missing from a mental health facility was found in a stairwell at the same San Francisco hospital where another missing woman’s body was found five years ago.

On May 20th, 75-year-old Ruby Andersen went missing from a mental health facility. According to her daughter, Anderson suffered from dementia.

On Wednesday, a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital staff member found the woman’s dead body in one of the hospital’s stairwells. An autopsy is pending.

The stairwell Anderson was found in is usually is locked, according to hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan, and only accessible to maintenance workers.

“We are very concerned how this could have happened,” Kagan said.

I bet she is concerned, along with the Sheriff’s Department. See, this is the second time this has happened at the hospital in the last five years.

Back in 2013, we reported on 57-year-old Lynne Spaulding, a patient at the hospital who went missing from her room. She was found dead in one of the hospital’s stairwells two weeks later.…

Although, some sources are saying the medication the hospital had her on was making her disoriented.

The hospital said they last saw Spaulding in her fifth floor room at 10:15 am on September 21st, and that her condition had improved. A nurse checked on her fifteen minutes later and she was gone. When her boyfriend and two friends came to visit Spaulding shortly after, they were told she’d gone missing. Her family filed a missing persons report after the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department and hospital staff conducted, what they believed to be, a thorough search of the hospital.…
