No. Maybe not the best practice by not asking, but not malpractice.

I am sorry your husband was denied the experience. Unfortunately, no, there is no medical malpractice here. Medical malpractice involved harm caused as a result of failing to keep to certain standards. Fortunately there is no physical damage to be had here, and no failure of the standard of medical care doctors and nurses are required to follow.
