Harlem Hospital HIV Nightmare...

A city hospital nearly destroyed a New Jersey woman's life and wrecked her marriage after misdiagnosing her with terminal HIV, hepatitis and herpes, according to a bombshell lawsuit.

Maria Osorio, 54, of Passaic, said she saw an ad on TV offering a $15 mammogram at Harlem Hospital over Valentine's Day last February and decided to take advantage of the screening.

When a nurse offered her a free instant cheek swab and blood test, too, she accepted. That's when she was told she had HIV.

"It was horrible. I wanted to throw myself on the subway tracks," she said. The story goes on to say that Marie contemplated murdering him, and also committing suicide. But three weeks later, while Marie was plotting her next move, the hospital called and told her that they had made a mistake. And that Marie's blood was 100% clean.

Marie and her husband are now suing Harlem Hospital for an unspecified amount of money.
