Yeah, I'm glad you said that (about suing). I had responded before I fininshed reading, just was so appalled. Also appalled with the mom who's baby was given a paci without her consent with the note (remove paci before returning to room). Where the hell are these people going to nursing school??? I went 13 years ago and we knew this stuff (nipple confusion and avoidance of bottles and formula and pt. consent) and I hardly paid attention during my Mother/Baby rotation, just wasn't my thing at 19/20 years old...
I don't understand baby leaving the room. They did the hearing tests in our room, the pediatricians came to the room every morning, the neonatal NP examined them in the OR. Why do *some* hospitals still have nurseries? I thought rooming in and no nurseries was the norm. We live in Florida. I had my son 10 years ago in California and he never left either except for circumcision and my husband went with him.
