ny woman loses hands, feeet in hospital mistake

NEW YORK (CBS) ― A young mother went to a Brooklyn hospital for what she thought was a kidney stone. She wound up leaving without her hands and feet because of what her lawyers call a "medical mistake."
Now, Tabitha Mullings is suing for $100 million.

The 32-year-old suffered an infection and ended up a quadriplegic with impaired vision.

It was on Sept. 14 when Mullings came to the hospital suffering from abdominal pain, and had a kidney stone, and a condition with a known propensity for infection.

But Mullings' lawyers say there was no blood test. She was sent home, and when her fiancé brought her back the next day, an infection was raging. It choked off the blood flow to her extremities. After gangrene set in, her hands turned black, her feet turned black, all four limbs had to be amputated.

On Friday, Mullings was moved to a rehab center after two months at Brooklyn Hospital Center. She will be fitted with prosthetic hands and feet which she'll have to learn to use.
