An 800-pound Rhode Island man was booted from a weight loss program at Rhode Island Hospital for getting pizza.
Steven Assanti had been enrolled in the program for the last 80 days, and after dropping a few pounds decided to celebrate.
This apparently was a violation of his care plan, as he was supposed to drop 250 pounds in order to have gastric bypass surgery performed on him.
Assanti is currently living in the back of his dad’s van until arrangements with another hospital can be made.
Did the hospital overreact to the man buying a pizza, or did he deserve to be removed from the weight loss program?
