Mommyish Poll: Should The Parents Who Beyonce’s Birth Denied Access To Sue?

By  | 

Lenox Hill HospitalLenox Hill hospital may have released a statement denying the allegations that parents were prevented access to their babies in the NICU, as well as general mobility about the hospital. However, The New York Times reports multiple accounts from parents who describe Beyonce‘s birth as eclipsing their own needs as patients.

One father even points out that covering up the security cameras in the hospital, as reported by many outlets, poses a real threat to the rest of the infants. Lenox Hill not only denies that they sealed off an entire floor for the new parents, but also says that no formal complaints have been filed against the hospital.

Although a spokesperson claims to be currently looking into any violations by the staff, the State Health Department is “concerned” by coverage from The Daily News and The New York Post illustrating parents not being able to access their kids. Jay-Z and Beyonce did not comment on the reports when releasing a press release about the birth of Blue Ivy.

But since no formal complaints have been reported, do you think some, if not all, of the parents involved should get on this in a legal way?

    I think they already got paid for making up that story for the tabloids/papers.

      Out of curiousity, what leads you to believe that the stories are false?

      I’m absolutely not saying I know who is being truthful or not. I’m honestly curious how you came to your conclusion.

    If this is all true, it’s high time that these celebrities get over themselves. They have no right demanding special treatment and denying people from seeing their babies.

    Considering no one reported these incidents to the hospital, and the hospital issued a statement denying these claims ever happened… then no, what would they sue over?

    There seems to be a lot of immature gossip on this site written by this author regarding Beyonce and her pregnancy.

      The hospital administrator claims no one reported the problems. Several nurses on the NICU as well as many patients not directly involved all say differently. I’m pretty sure the nurses who could lose their job for siding with patients have a lot less reason to lie than the hospital director who is in hot water and stands to lose millions if the allegations prove true. Jay-Z and Beyonce should never have been allowed to bring private security into a maternity ward anyway and there is no doubt the hospital was 100% in the wrong simply for allowing them to be there–that in itself is intimidating to other patients, especially in an area with so many sick children where stress levels are already high. If the Carters were that concerned about their privacy they have more than enough money to do everything from home.

    People are way too sue-happy. If the claims are true, sure the hospital is wrong and should apologize. So should Beyonce’s security team. But I haven’t heard of any lasting damage. People were frustrated, angry, scared, etc., but no one missed their baby being born or dying did they? No one was barred from being present to make important medical decisions? Then an apology and a promise not to let it happen again should cut it.

      Sounds like you never had children. Babies end up getting mixed up; to not allow parents to see their new babies for even a few minutes is nerve-wracking. The only way these places who capitalize on such events without weighing the consequences will learn to not make this type of incredibly stupid mistakes is by suing them. Sue Beyond-a-care and Jay-zzzzz and sue the hospital.

    I feel it was definitly wrong of the Carter`s,They have more than enough money to have had thee baby at a more private location….!,There`s more to this story than the public know`s,the reason this was done on another wing of the hospital is because she did not deliver this baby,but who are we to judge….it seems money can buy everything…They should tell the truth….!

    A doctor was even quoted saying that a 6th floor was being transformed for Beyond-a-care and her husband Jay-zzzzzz! What more evidence than that do you want? Have you even read the New York Time’s report? No? So you just make comments because you’re allowed to talk out of your a$$? You’re awesome… Too bad I can’t sue you!
