RED WING, 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 was found in a sheet Tuesday at a laundry service in Red Wing, about 45 miles southeast of the city. The hospital says the remains had been wrapped in linens in its morgue and were mistaken for laundry that was to be sent for cleaning.
Hospital officials say the baby was stillborn at 22 weeks development.
The hospital calls it a "terrible mistake" and is extending "deep apologies" to the family. It's also 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.
