L.A. Children’s Hospital sued over stem-cell freezer failure

A California couple sued Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on Wednesday over a freezer malfunction that resulted in the loss of blood stem cells from 56 child patients, including their son.

The hospital apologized for the problem a year ago with its cryogenic freezer and said at the time that no child’s health was put in jeopardy because of the failure.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the boy, identified only as “EF,” who suffers from neuroblastoma, a rare cancer. Stem-cell treatment is vital for his condition and the loss of his cells cut off a “lifeline and a safety net for EF and his family,” according to the lawsuit.

The complaint alleges negligence, medical malpractice and breach of contract on the part of hospital officials. It seeks unspecified monetary damages.

“We are committed to working toward a positive outcome for all involved,” the hospital said in a statement Wednesday.
