LAS VEGAS — Clark County says University Medical Center has suspended six employees while it investigates claims that a woman was ignored for so long in an emergency room that she went home and gave birth to a premature baby who later died.

The county released a statement Friday from hospital administrator Kathy Silver expressing condolences to the 25-year-old woman, Roshunda Abney, and promising a thorough investigation of the Nov. 30 incident.

Others who were in the waiting room at the region’s only public hospital have corroborated accounts by Abney and her fiance that they were ignored for several hours until they finally left.

Abney gave birth at home to a premature baby girl who died a short time later.
