Worker suspended over lost baby

A hospital in Kent (England) which temporarily lost the remains of a dead baby has revealed it suspended a mortuary worker after the error. Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup said the male worker, who has not been named, had returned to work - under close supervision. The remains of baby James Fernandez were put through a hot wash after he went missing from the hospital. Full text here.

If this thing happened in a Philippine hospital, the worker would surely be terminated from employment (of course, after being beaten to pulp by the father).
