Baby's body missing

Talk about awful news. It is bad enough when a baby dies at birth or soon after, but when the baby's body disappears also.... that is just not right. A baby born prematurely at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Northern California died two hours after being born. The body was misplaced and found six days later in the pathology department's refrigerator.

The hospital released a statement saying they will not discuss specific details due to the patient's privacy. The hospital offered their apologies to the family. It is not enough to suffer the loss, but to be put through additional aggravation is very, very sad. The hospital is investigating how this could have happened and how they can prevent it from happening again.

I hope someone has advised the parents to seek help from an experienced professional malpractice attorney familiar with hospital procedure.
