Criticism and controversy[edit]

On July 20, 2012 Brittney Leon was admitted to the hospital because of complications to her pregnancy. She was informed her lesbian partner, Terri-Ann Simonelli, with whom she was registered with the state of Nevada as domestic partners would not be able to make medical decisions for her without a medical power of attorney nor would the hospital keep Ms. Simonelli appraised of Ms. Leon's status. This is in contravention of Nevada state law, but there is no penalty for the violation.[1]
