Hospital apologizes for baby found at off-site laundry service

A Minnesota hospital is investigating a gap in systems that allowed a stillborn baby to wind up at its off-site laundry service, the Associated Press reported. Officials at Regions Hospital admitted and apologized for mishandling the baby's body.  "We have processes in place that should have prevented this but did not," Chief Nursing Officer Chris Boese said in a statement. Boese added that Regions officials were still trying to contact the child's family and find out what caused the "terrible mistake." The hospital also is offering counseling to laundry service employees and hospital workers involved. Article
