UCSF Health is seeking assistance from the public in identifying a patient in our hospital who appears to be suffering from dementia.

The patient was transported to UCSF Medical Center on May 1 after being found at the Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets, in San Francisco. He speaks Italian and some English, and has no identifying features such as tattoos or scars.

The patient is unable to provide information about his identity, and UCSF Health’s attempts to identify him through public agencies remain unsuccessful.

If you have information about this individual’s identity, please call UCSF Medical Center Department of Social Work, at (415) 353-1762.
