CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

In March 22-year-old Lakisha Wilson died seven days after being placed in an ambulance in front of Preterm, an abortion clinic in Cleveland. She was five months pregnant. 

A 911 call stated she wasn't breathing at the clinic. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has yet to determine her cause of death. 

19 Action News investigative reporter Scott Taylor dug into the records of Preterm with the Ohio Health Department.

Over the past seven years the state of Ohio has only two complaints that resulted into an investigation into Preterm. The complaints are confidential but the follow up investigations are public record. In March of 2007 a complaint and the state finds nothing wrong.

In July of 2012 another complaint was lodged. The state found Preterm wasn't keeping track in their employees' personal files all current Ohio licenses, registrations and certifications. 

Preterm's director of nursing is now monitoring all updates. 

In March of 2012, during a license compliance inspection, the state found that Preterm failed to ensure that complete medical records from one patient were transported with them to a hospital after noticing the patient had increased bleeding.

Preterm updated their emergency transfer protocol and noted the patient didn't require any medical intervention at the hospital.  

Their latest inspection occurred in April of 2013 and records show Preterm is in compliance with all state guidelines.
