    Chris’s Answer

    You certainly have a case for your loss of property.
    You may have a case for your emotional distress depending upon the facts.
    Normally, you cannot recover in Florida for emotional distress unless there is a "touching" of your person.
    But, there is a body of law that will allow for such a recovery if the conduct of the hospital in failing to provide adequate security was particularly egregious.
