Bronx man Randy Nero, 40, who had an obsessive and uncontrollable habit of swallowing toothbrushes, choked on a toothbrush contained in a personal hygiene kit that a hospital nurse gave him. Nero decided to sue Jacobi Medical Center in 2018 for what he claimed is ‘medical malpractice,’ saying the nurse should have known about his decades-long history of being a compulsive toothbrush eater. He has filed a lawsuit against the hospital in the Bronx Supreme Court.
