Report: Las Vegas Hospital Sent Miscarried Babies to Laundry

By    |   Wednesday, 04 Mar 2015 01:05 PM

Law enforcement officials are currently investigating how two miscarried babies ended up being included in a shipment of laundry sent from a Las Vegas-area hospital, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The police have confirmed that two 16-week old fetuses were discovered by workers at a laundry facility used by the Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center, but Henderson police spokesman Kathleen Richards said it was unclear how they wound up in the laundry.

"After suffering a miscarriage at another location, the patient arrived via EMS with twins — early gestational, deceased fetuses. The fetuses had already been wrapped in linen prior to arrival at the hospital. We are currently reviewing the situation to determine what occurred.

"However, the remains are currently in the hospital's possession, and we are working with the family at this time," Spring Valley Hospital spokeswoman Gretchen Papez said in a statement issued Tuesday to Las Vegas' Fox affiliate.

Workers at the Angelica Corporation, a medical linen service, found the babies on Tuesday morning and, while law enforcement do not believe a crime was committed, Richards told the Review-Journal that an investigation would continue until the Clark County coroner reaches a conclusion regarding a cause of death.
