Las Vegas, NV - A Las Vegas man has filed a lawsuit against Summerlin Hospital for the wrongful death of his wife and twin baby girls who were born there in 2013.
Ruben White's lawsuit, filed by attorney Robert Cottle alleges Summerlin Hospital, along with its doctors and nurses failed to diagnose and treat 25-year-old Vanessa White for tuberculosis even though she had symptoms during and after her pregnancy.
During her hospital stay, photos show Vanessa coming in contact with the girls in the ICU and subsequently passing along tuberculosis.
Summerlin Hospital denies the allegations.
