can you picture a better scenario than this? you go into the hospital to give birth to your first child, you’re knocked out for surgery due to complications, and when you wake up: YOU HAVE NO ARMS OR LEGS. and, even better, the hospital says you have to sue them in order to find out what hapened while you were knocked out.

HOW THE HELL DOES THIS HAPPEN? (thanks, Digg, WFTV9)

“Claudia Mejia gave birth eight and a half months ago at Orlando Regional South Seminole. She was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center in Orlando where her arms and legs were amputated. She was told she had streptococcus, a flesh eating bacteria, and toxic shock syndrome, but no further explanation was given.

The hospital, in a letter, wrote that if she wanted to find out exactly what happened, she would have to sue them. The hospital’s lawyers wrote back, “Ms. Mejia’s request may require legal resolution.” In other words, according to their interpretation of the law, Mejia has to sue them to get information about herself. “
