This week my future husband is:

  • courageous
  • versatile
  • and about to come in to a great deal of money. 
My honey this week is from Key Largo Florida. He came to my attention because he is suing a hospital. His name is John, he had gone to the hospital last fall and had his leg amputated below the knee.
John went to Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables to have the procedure done, and normally hospitals will incinerate the limb, but this hospital simply tossed it in the trash. At this point John didn’t know anything about this. It was a month later when he was contacted by homicide detectives knocking on his door and asking him why his leg was found at a waste management facility with the man's name tag still attached.

Hospital officials have not been able to explain how this mistake was made. 

The Hospital released a statement, saying in part, "When Doctors Hospital was notified of this situation, hospital leaders took immediate and appropriate measures to address it. Proper procedures have been reinforced at the hospital to prevent similar situations from happening in the future."
In John's lawsuit, he claims emotional distress and that he suffered an invasion of privacy, embarrassment and humiliation because of the incident.
