Is there a way for hospitals to track who left with their amputated body parts, in case that same body part later shows up in a proposed civil suit?

I've known people who might have been stupid enough not to even go to the hospital. Heck, I've seen people with second (And then some) degree burns stick a band-aid on it and keep working.

So the whole amputations could have happened outside of the healthcare network.
