Saturday, June 7, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: According to the Reporter Newspaper, police have identified the individual who was responsible for leaving a decomposing fetus under a patient’s bed at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital last Friday night, May 29.
They believe it was a young woman who was rushed to the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital after reportedly attempting, unsuccessfully, to conduct an abortion, needing medical treatment.
The remains, in a small white box, were found by hospital staff around 8:00 p.m. after the patient under whose bed the box was found alerted them.
The KHMH says the abortion victim was appropriately treated and discharged.
The hospital has since issued a public apology to those negatively affected by the incident, admitting that “appropriate procedures were not followed.”
The hospital says the remains were the “product of conception”; that is, a non-viable pregnancy terminated by miscarriage.
Police have been given a list of names of persons passing through the Unit at the time of the incident to be interviewed and their investigations continue.
