"A man is suing Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after his wife died during childbirth.
Charles Johnson says doctors told them now 3-year-old Langston’s birth would be a routine cesarean section.
“I just held her by her hand and said, ‘please look, my wife isn’t doing well.’ This woman looked me directly in my eye and said, ‘Sir, your wife is not a priority right now.’ It wasn’t until 12.30 a.m. the next morning that they finally took the decision to take Kira back to surgery,” Johnson said.
As critical minutes turned into hours, Johnson says he was continually ignored by staff as Kira’s health continued to suffer.
He is suing the hospital for the loss of his wife, and with the case pending, the hospital said in a statement that they could not respond directly because of privacy laws but that “Cedars-Sinai thoroughly investigates any situation where there are concerns about a patient’s medical care.”
Kira was a successful entrepreneur who spoke five languages."*
