Elizabeth's death Wednesday comes weeks after the family joined a class-action lawsuit filed against the hospital in behalf of the families of patients who have been sickened from the mold. The filing alleges hospital managers knew as early as 2005 that the transmission of Aspergillus into its premises could be related to its air-handling system, and it claims the hospital engaged in "a cover-up designed to reassure its patients, doctors, nurses, and the public that its premises were safe, when in fact they were not."

The infant was born in August at a Tacoma hospital but was transferred to Seattle Children's Hospital the following day for "treatment of an underdeveloped left heart and other related conditions," according to the lawsuit.

When reached by CNN on Thursday, a hospital spokesperson did not confirm the death but responded with a statement:

"Losing a child is incredibly devastating for everyone whose lives were touched by that child," the statement said. "Our deepest condolences go out to families and loved ones who have experienced a loss. Out of respect for privacy of our patients and their families, Seattle Children's will not be sharing additional information."

Mold's rare fatal consequences

Aspergillus is a common mold that most people breathe in without getting sick, but it poses a greater risk to those with weakened immune systems or lung disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Health problems can include allergic reactions, lung infections and other organ infections.

Prior mold infections in hospitals have also had fatal consequences.

Mold played a part in five deaths between 2014 and 2016 at two University of Pittsburgh Medical Center hospitals, according to a 2017 report. Those patients were exposed to Mucor and Rhizopus mold.

Those who died of the infection were transplant patients. Both the hospital and the facility that handled the hospital's linens tested positive for mold, the report showed.
