TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio hospital where a nurse accidentally threw out a viable kidney has resumed its kidney transplant program.
The University Toledo Medical Center had voluntarily suspended the transplant program after the Aug. 10 accident. After an investigation and policy changes, the hospital announced last month it was ready to resume the living-donor program.
Hospital spokesman Jon Strunk told The (Toledo) Blade (http://bit.ly/XakoLw ) that the first surgery took place Thursday. He declined to provide patient information.
