Unplanned Circumcision Prompts Lawsuit Against Florida Hospital

Accidental and mistaken medical procedures are on the rise in some U.S. medical facilities, and newborn Mario Viera fell prey to this troubling trend when he was circumcised against his families express wishes in a south Florida hospital in August 2010. The family, which is strongly opposed to the practice of circumcision, has filed both criminal and civil charges against the hospital, which says that staff members misread a consent form. The personal injury suit filed by the Delgado family in the case requests unspecified damages.
