Jill and Victor McCall have sued the doctor and Methodist Women’s Hospital in west Omaha.
The lawsuit says the hospital and its staff violated a 2003 state law that requires every hospital maintain a written policy for the disposition of remains of a stillborn. The law also says a parent has the right to direct the disposition of a stillborn’s remains within 14 days of delivery.
The McCalls say that did not happen with their stillborn, whom they named Robert Thomas. His twin, Michael, survived and is now 2.
