DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky woman says a hospital lost two wedding rings after she was admitted for a broken hip.

The Advocate Messenger (https://bit.ly/1Xy9Ybi ) reports Virginia Koss filed a lawsuit against Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville.

The lawsuit says the Garrard County resident was admitted to the hospital on Feb. 21 after a fall. At the time she was wearing two rings - her own and that of her late husband. They were married 67 years.

The lawsuit says Koss objected when hospital staff asked her to take off her rings, which were removed during the surgery process. Her family noticed them missing after she was transferred to a rehabilitation center.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.



The newspaper reports a hospital attorney was unavailable for comment.
