This news item l0 June l999 on a local (Vancouver, B.C. Canada) radio station:Woman Sues St. Paul'sVANCOUVER (CKNW/98) -- A Vancouver woman is suing St. Paul's Hospital and several doctors because she was diagnosed as carrying the Aids virus, when in fact she wasn't. In a BC Supreme Court writ, Lisa Lebed claims when she was admitted to the hospital in late 1995 to give birth to a daughter, a blood sample was taken without her consent. It revealed she was HIV positive, so she gave up the baby girl for adoption and decided to have a tubal ligation. A year and-a-half later, while undergoing aids treatment, she found out she was not HIV positive. The explanation she was given was a lab error. She says because of the negligence of the hospital, she's nowsterile and has lost a daughter.
