ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota hospital is apologizing for mishandling a stillborn baby who was discovered at a laundry service.
Regions Hospital in St. Paul says the body found in a sheet at a laundry service in Red Wing on Tuesday was that of a 22-week-old stillborn. The hospital says the remains had been wrapped in linens in its morgue and were mistaken for laundry that was to be sent out for cleaning.
The hospital calls it a "terrible mistake" and is extending "deep apologies" to the family. It also is offering counseling to employees of the linen service.
Chief nursing officer Chris Boese says the hospital has procedures that should've prevented the mistake and is working to ensure it doesn't happen again.
Red Wing is about 45 miles southeast of St. Paul.
