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 Simonelli apprised of Leon's status. This is in contravention of Nevada state law, but there is no penalty for the violation.[1]
