RED WING, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota laundry service that discovered the remains of a stillborn baby in hospital linens says that no other remains have been found at its facility.
Crothall Healthcare in Red Wing made the statement after Regions Hospital in St. Paul announced the remains of a second stillborn baby were missing. Crothall says the hospital is reviewing the laundry over the weekend in hopes of recovering the missing stillborn.
Regions said Friday that it believes the remains of a stillborn at 19 weeks gestational age had been placed in the same basket as the remains of another stillborn discovered Tuesday. That stillborn was 22 weeks gestational age.
The hospital has apologized.
Crothall president Steve Carpenter says on the company website that Crothall is prepared to help the hospital and grieving parents.
