Couple says hospital misplaced remains of miscarried baby
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A couple says a suburban Philadelphia hospital misplaced the remains of their miscarried baby.
Tiffany Griffin and Chad Greaves filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming Bryn Mawr Hospital mistakenly gave a funeral home Griffin's placenta to cremate instead of the baby's remains.
Seventeen days later, the remains were found, having been misplaced like "a set of keys or item of clothing," the lawsuit alleges.
The couple is seeking damages of more than $50,000.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Griffin was 18 weeks pregnant when she was rushed to the hospital and told she had miscarried.
Maine Line Health, which oversees the hospital, says there was a "mix-up with paperwork" and they're "deeply upset" for the mistake.
The couple, both 31, says they are still seeking answers for how this error happened.
