The Mercury News

A woman has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Washington Hospital over a stillborn delivery last year that contributed to a rift between the hospital and nurses and resulted in a rebuke from state health officials. The lawsuit, filed in Alameda County Superior Court, states that improper care at Washington was a substantial factor in the stillborn delivery that occurred while the 19-year-old expectant mother was receiving an epidural during labor.
