Ohio hospital denies negligence in transplant case

Boston.com / Associated Press, August 30, 2013

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The University of Toledo Medical Center denies a family's allegations of medical negligence over a botched kidney transplant and wants the Ohio Court of Claims to dismiss the case, according to court filings. The hospital has said a nurse accidentally threw out a chilled, protective slush containing a viable kidney donated to a Toledo woman by her younger brother in August 2012. The 24-year-old woman, who was suffering from end-stage renal disease, later received a different kidney in Colorado, court records show. A complaint by the siblings and their family alleged the facility in northwest Ohio was negligent, causing physical and emotional suffering for the patients and emotional distress for their parents.
