New Orleans IVF clinic shuts its doors

Scandals will keep clinic closed for good

An IVF clinic in New Orleans which made numerous mistakes will remain closed. As reported in BioEdge, a variety of errors including misplacement, mislabelling and destruction of embryos at an IVF clinic run by the Ochsner Health System led to a number of lawsuits. An audit found that the embryos of 15 patients’ are unusable.The errors seem to have been made by one part-time employee who was not fully qualified for the job. The hospital has advised patients to undergo genetic testing for embryos prior to implantation, so that parents can be certain that they are getting the appropriate embryos.  ~ Times-Picayune, Oct 30
