Claim: Girl, 5, found used rubber, placed item in her mouth

Claiming that their young daughter discovered a used condom in a Las Vegas hotel bed and then put the rubber in her mouth, a Scottish couple is suing Caesar's Palace for negligence and emotional distress. According to a lawsuit filed July 13 in Clark County District Court, five-year-old Caitlin Kilcoyne found the condom during a July 2004 Sin City visit with her parents Gerald and Jacqueline. Caitlin "found a used condom in the made up bed in her room...and placed the condom in her mouth," notes the complaint, a copy of which you'll find below. The Kilcoynes contend that, following the incident, they incurred expenses for medical treatment, hospitalization, x-rays, drugs, and "evaluation and treatment of Caitlin's condition." The lawsuit does not indicate what, if any, lasting damage was caused to the child. The complaint, which seeks in excess of $10,000 in damages, claims that the family has suffered "shock, horror, fear, anxiety, and distress." (6 pages)

If true, Caesar's Palace might as well just pull out the check book...

I guess it's possible, but the story sounds a bit fishy to me. Don't hotel maids always change the linen in the beds when they make them up after people vacate the room?

I would hope so....

Are the comforters changed? Given the used condom's--- how should I say this--- "properties", it might have clung to that...or the bed frame... who knows?

YUCK!

They're supposed to change them every time someone sleeps in them. I don't really see a maid changing the sheets and tucking the used condom back into the bed. Perhaps the parents left it in there and forgot?

That is really gross... The girl was 5. I don't know many five year olds, but I've never seen one pick something up and just stick it in their mouth without first going "Mommy, what's this?" The whole thing sounds really fishy.

That would be obvious... as anyone with children is shaking their head at your next statement:

Not meaning to pick on you, but just pointing out the obvious every parent knows through experience...

It does sound a little fishy, however I do think it's plausable. When it comes to the linens, yes, the housemaids DO change them. However, they don't change the comforter thingy (is it thick enough to be called a comforter?). They can't wash them as easily as they can the other sheets or have a supply room big enough to hold an extra for all the rooms. I guess I could be wrong when it comes to such a big hotel like Ceasar's, because I am using my experiance from a smaller chain to give some input here.

It does seem a little out of the ordinary, but then again maybe the maids just didnt do their job like they were supposed to. I mean, they are human, we do expect them to be perfect and clean thorougly but they always dont. And the article said they had to do treatment, xrays, etc. and the family is only asking for 10,000 dollars. It doesnt seem farfetched, just enough to pay off the bills. Usually when something like this happens, like the finger in the wendys chili incident, they ask for hundreds of thousands and sometimes millions of dollars.

I could see this happening but what kind of xrays did she need. Sounds like the parents went overboard which is, I guess, understandable. Remember the Dateline report done several years ago about hotel rooms. They did the infamous black light test on some rooms and found all kinds of nasties. I guarantee that they can't wash those comforters every time but hopefully they do change the sheets and don't just make the bed. Simple rules, always check under the covers and for Gods sake clean the TV remote before your child chews on that. That remote is where the real nasty things are.

For peace of mind, I would have done the same.

Great advice!!! I wouldn't have thought of that!!!

I've never stayed at Caeser's in LV, but I've stayed at many Casino hotels in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and never had any problems with the maid service, in fact they always took care of your every need...again, it could be an odd case and if it happened they should pay the medical costs if the child wasn't insured, but again I think it sounds fishy.

No problem. Borderline OCD pays off sometimes.

Seriously though, this story makes you wonder about maid service in some hotels.

Finding a dead body in your room is definety worse than a used condom (even if your child put it in his/her mouth).


But looking at that article, these all looked like cheap motels, not a luxury or semi-luxury hotel like Caesar's is.

Yeah thats pretty gross.
Ceasars should just pay up if they're at fault.

But what the heck, 5 is like kindergarden age. What on earth is a 5 year old doing sticking a rubber, probably slimey thing in her mouth? OK forget that, what is a 5 year old doing in Sin City!?

Well, that'd be one h*ll of a thing to find.

I think the amount of money the people are asking for is
a fair amount, I'd ask for 15-20 thousand myself.

ONly problem I have is the reasons they're using,
"shock, horror, fear, anxiety, and distress", they should
have said some things more along the lines of,
"safety hazard, unsanitary living conditions, staff negligence",
IMO that just sounds better.


Oh, and after readin the dead body thing, I'm never sleeping in
a motel/hotel unless I make a maid or staff member thoroughly
check the room out with me there.

Thanks loam, I'm glad finally someone got my sense of humor!

I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies here...get a cheap motel, you sleep with a corpse, a midrange one you get someone else's used condom in your bed... I would suggest sticking with Mirage, Bellagio, Venetian, etc...

It's not Sin City anymore, it's a family destination, haven't you heard? Bring the children with you when you come to gamble away their future! Hell, let them pick the numbers, then you can lay the blame at their feet when the house gets repo'd.



I don't find it unusual that a maid could have missed something like that. It's possible she didn't even change the sheets, which could explain how the condom was still there. Or, it's also possible the maid and some 'paying customer' were the ones who left the condom there, on the sheets, after they'd been changed.

It's not unheard of for Vegas maids to make a little on the side by selling their 'services'... I'm sure the vast majority aren't like that, but anyone who tells me there's no such thing as a Vegas hooker maid is just naive.

They also have access to the rooms and, depending on the camera coverage, could easily turn a trick before/after they've fluffed the pillows. I've never been to that hotel, so I can't say, but if the cameras are in the stairwells and elevators, and leave the hallways unmonitored, it would be a simple matter for a maid to use the rooms for sex. Anyone know for sure whether there are camera globes in the hallways of this particular hotel?

It's also entirely possible that this was the act of a disgruntled employee. What better way to get back at the hotel than to bring a lawsuit down on their heads?

And, as far as the X-Ray, I don't think it's ludicrous at all. They were probably making sure she didn't swallow another condom that the parents didn't see.

All that said, it could totally be a hoax put on by the parents. People have done far worse things for money. And I hate this overly-litigious society as much as anyone, but c'mon, who here wouldn't sue the hotel if this actually happened to your family on vacation?

I get upset when people sue for no reason, but I think this is justified (assuming it's true). If it was my daughter, I'd be FREAKING OUT, worrying if she had caught some horrible disease. That's perfectly understandable emotional distress, brought on by negligence on the part of the hotel, and there are your grounds for a civil judgement, right?

So true.


And yeah, I'd want to have the kid x-rayed as well, in case she snacked on a couple more goodies before the parents grabbed her wrist.

But damn, first reactions: THAT IS DISGUSTING!!!

Absolutely disgusting. The kid put it in her mouth without asking what it was because she thought it was a baloon compliments of the nice people at caesars palace. I'd be sueing them for a 7 figure sum if it was my kid.
