TOLEDO: A family that sued after a nurse tossed a healthy kidney in the trash during a transplant has settled its lawsuit against an Ohio hospital for $650,000.

A patient, Sarah Fudacz, who was 24 at the time, was to receive her brotherís kidney in 2012 but awoke without having undergone surgery because the nurse had accidentally thrown it out. Fudacz later received a different kidney but the family sued the University of Toledo Medical Center, claiming medical negligence.

In a settlement approved Wednesday by the Court of Claims of Ohio, the money will be split among Fudacz and her brother along with their parents.
