The administrator of a prominent Fresno hospital is stepping down.Kaiser Permanente's Susan Ryan has resigned just days after a federal report criticizing supervision at the hospital was released.

The report suggests two babies who died might still be alive today if doctor "Hamid Safari" had been more closely monitored.

The investigation was triggered when "Safari" was allowed to continue handling high-risk pregnancies. Even after staffers complained to management he was putting babies at risk.
