But debate continues on how to get people off the street

By Kelly Davis

In a wheelchair, wearing surgical scrubs for pants and with a thick cast on his right leg, Ramirez, who’s homeless, had been discharged from UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest the day before. He’d fractured his leg jumping out of a dumpster while searching for recyclables and spent five days in the hospital. He was discharged with a bus pass and headed back to 14th and G streets, where he hoped to find a friend who had his belongings.
