Role UTMC official played in transplant not disclosed
A third University of Toledo Medical Center employee has been suspended with pay for his involvement in a surgery this month that went awry when a viable kidney was thrown away into a pool of other medical waste instead of being transplanted into the donor's sister.
Edwin Hall, administrator of surgical services, was notified Monday that he would be on "paid administrative leave" from his $164,999-a-year job. Hospital officials declined to elaborate on what role he played in the Aug. 10 surgery.
Mr. Hall of Troy, Mich., could not be reached for comment.
