Hospital accused of lying about location of baby's remains

When people have the need to visit a hospital in New York, they place a large amount of trust in the staff members, health care providers and other medical professionals to provide thorough diagnoses and careful treatment. However, in tragic situations where people end up passing away while at the hospital, staff members are also responsible for providing compassionate care in ensuring the proper transferal of human remains to a place where they will be cared for in a safe, respectful and appropriate environment. 

In a jarring story out of Detroit, Michigan, a hospital is under fire for what can be described as the disrespectful handling of a deceased infant's body following her death soon after birth. In the lawsuit filed by the baby's mother, she alleges the hospital acted deceitfully when they gave her daughter's body to a funeral home against the agreement she had made with staff members. The incident began when the baby passed away soon after birth and the hospital asked the mother if she would be interested in donating her child's body to a research facility. The mother agreed but found out later on that her daughter's body had been given to a funeral home. 

After bringing her concerns to the attention of local authorities, a raid was conducted on the funeral home where investigators found the bodies of 63 other infants or fetuses that were being improperly stored. In the lawsuit, the mother claims the hospital was dishonest with her and with the funeral home when they declared the remains abandoned before handing them over. Claims also allege that the hospital failed to require and complete necessary documents that should have been filed in the death of the infant. 

If people have been the victims of mistreatment by hospital staff, they may wish to hire an attorney to help them build their case. A legal professional may be able to highlight the areas in which the hospital acted negligently to get victims the compensation they deserve.
