This story is indicative of the variety of issues that can arise relating to hospital care.  According to the news report, a woman in Texas is struggling to retrieve her husband’s heart from a hospital seven years after a clinical autopsy was done.  The hospital had earlier lost a claim for negligence in handling of the autopsy, and is appealing the $2 million fraud award to the woman.  http://www.propublica.org/article/cardiac-arrest-hospital-refuses-to-give-widow-her-husbands-heart
