Minn. hospital sued after stillborn baby discarded with dirty laundry

October 20, 2017

The family of a stillborn baby discarded in Regions Hospital’s dirty laundry after staff promised to cremate the remains is suing the St. Paul, Minn., facility, according to an article on the Pioneer Press website.

Nearly two weeks after the stillborn baby was delivered, an anonymous tip informed Red Wing police that workers at Crothall Laundry Services had found the body of a baby inside a dirty laundry bag sent to the facility for cleaning from Regions.

Regions Hospital was notified about what had happened from Crothall Laundry staff, who later relayed to police that the hospital had instructed them to reach out to the hospital directly when “something like this shows up in the linens,” the suit said.

A second newborn’s remains were also discarded in Regions’ dirty laundry around the same time. That baby was born April 7, 2013. His remains were never found.
