ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- A hospital mix up has left a mother heartbroken and looking for answers.
Carol Dement went to Barnes Jewish Hospital in the Central West End, desperate to find her daughter Alexandria Allen.
The hospital could not locate Allen for several days.
Dement eventually found out her daughter had died through the medical examiner’s office.
Barnes says they couldn't identify Allen when she was admitted and mis-interpreted the patient admission information.
