University to Probe Medical Center

October 11, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

The University of Virginia appointed a committee to review the school's medical center, which has been embarrassed three times recently. The Charlottesville hospital mixed up two newborns in 1995, recently switched the bodies of dead babies and last year mistakenly gave a mother who miscarried only her baby's placenta to bury. Hospital officials said a police investigation into the switched babies has failed to uncover how the girls went home with wrong families.
