Oops! Kidney For Transplant in Ohio Thrown in Trash

An Ohio nurse accidentally put a kidney in the trash, prompting the University of Toledo Medical Center to suspend its live donor program as it investigates the incident.

Doctors tried to resuscitate the kidney, which came from a live donor, but it was rendered unusable.

“We cannot fathom the disappointment that those impacted have experienced over the course of the last week. The University cannot begin to express the sorrow that we feel that this unfortunate incident occurred. We apologize sincerely,” Dr. Jeffery P. Gold, University of Toledo chancellor and dean of the College of Medicine, said in a statement.

The hospital has voluntarily suspended its live kidney donor program and has placed two nurses on paid administrative leave while it investigates the incident.

“[We are] in the process of assessing how this situation occurred and we are committed to ensuring safeguards are put in place to prevent such an incident from ever happening again,” Gold said, adding that the hospital was getting help from experts inside and outside the institution.

The University of Toledo Medical Center has performed more than 1,700 renal transplants since it began in 1972, with a 98 percent success rate, according to the hospital.

A spokesperson said the transplant program is expected to reopen in the next few weeks.

*Didn't know you could resuscitate a kidney!*

As I may require a kidney in the future due to a genetic defect I cannot tell you how big a fuck up this is.

Waiting lists are a painful process and throwing one away when it is there to be used would definitely hurt someone somewhere.

Re: Oops! Kidney For Transplant in Ohio Thrown in Trash

With a success record of 98% and the program being in place for quite a lengthy time, as much as it is a boner move; shit does and will happen. The longer and more frequently something is done, the higher the chances for something to go wrong.

I can't imagine how or why this happened but we've all done incredibly dumb things and facepalmed ourselves ...this is a huge facepalm and I'm certain the nurse(s) responsible are not sleeping well.

I, like Ices, may also need a kidney in the near future so I'm not saying it's cool at all, it's just that "accidents" do happen.

Those nurses need to donate one each of their kidneys. I am from NE Ohio and I can tell you Ohio is sketchy they may have done it on purpose.

Why would they do that? I find it odd they closed down the entire unit, unless there was, in fact, other things going on.

What if there had been others they could have saved?

I am with diamondsmiles, there must be something else going on for them to close down the whole program. One mistake shouldn't do that.
