(NaturalNews) When Veronica Olguin brought her then three-month-old daughter Selena to the hospital back in October to be treated for a high fever and bronchitis, she had no idea that the young girl would end up leaving with nine fingers instead of ten. WTSP 10 News in Tampa, Fla., reports that Emily Anna Stutz, the nurse that had been caring for young Selena, sliced off the girl's pinky finger while trying to remove a bandage holding an IV in place.

"There was blood squirting everywhere," said Veronica in a recent interview with WTSP. "I held her head close to my chest [...] she was red, she was screaming. And I looked at her hand (and) she didn't have her finger anymore. I started screaming, 'Her finger! Her finger!' and that's when (the nurse) panicked and she threw her scissors and started screaming for the other doctors. And they came in and they picked the finger up from the floor."

After the incident, which occurred at the Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center (HFRMC), young Selena was immediately sent to Tampa General Hospital where surgeons attempted to re-attach her finger. But according to reports, that effort was a failure because the nerve endings in Selena's severed finger were so small that getting them to successfully graft back into the nerves in her hand was impossible.

Veronica has since filed a lawsuit against both HFRMC and Nurse Stutz for emotional and psychological damage caused by the incident, as well as for the developmental and general human functioning problems Selena will likely face as she grows older. Meanwhile, many others are wondering how Nurse Stutz managed to slice off Selena's finger in the first place, since the texture and resistance of tape is obviously much different than a human finger.

Such careless negligence appears to be on the rise throughout the conventional medical system, though, as overall quality of care declines and costs rise. According to Liam Donaldson, the World Health Organization's (WHO) "health czar," one out of every ten hospital patients today is a victim of a serious medical error, and one out of every 300 dies from a medical error (http://www.naturalnews.com/033167_hospital_dangers.html).
