Nearly one million Americans will have hip or knee replacement surgery this year. They’re among the fastest growing procedures in medicine.

University Hospitals and Kent State University are teaming up to alleviate the region’s nursing shortage.

Barbara Broome, Dean of Kent State’s College of Nursing, says the program allows senior nursing majors to do their clinical trials at University Hospital and return after graduation.

Broome says there’s a shortage of around three thousand nurses in Ohio, and these students can help fill the gap.

University Hospital is denying liability in the loss of 4,000 eggs and embryos after a cold storage tank malfunctioned this spring.

A remote alarm set to notify staff away for the weekend of a malfunction was shutoff.

Attorney Tom Merriman who represents some of the 950 affected families, says after an initial apology, the hospital has recently shifted responsibility.

University Hospital's fertility clinic says it had been experiencing problems with a storage tank for several weeks before it malfunctioned last month and ruined more than 4,000 eggs and embryos. It's twice the number originally reported by the hospital.

University Hospitals says the problem forced the clinic's staff to manually fill liquid nitrogen into the tank to keep the embryos frozen.

UH also says an alarm system was turned off on a storage tank that should have alerted staff to changes in the temperature on March 4.

UH CEO Tom Zenty issued an apology on Tuesday via a video posted on Facebook.
