Re: Mom/baby separation after csection
There's no way you can convince me that a nurse has the legal right to take a baby by force if a mama says no. Ass-covering or no. However they can (and do) convince mothers all the time that they don't have the option to say no. I'm sure the rules make their jobs easier. I have huge respect for nurses and what they do, but when I or one of my kids is the patient making the nurse/doctor/caregiver's job easier is not high on my priority list.
I totally get that many medical professionals do things solely to cover their ass, which is why I have no problem questioning 'policy.' Because frequently hospital 'policy' is made based on whether or not the hospital is likely to be sued and not necessarily patient well-being.
