NY nurses in Kennedy beef: We were protecting baby



Published: Thu, March 1, 2012 @ 3:39 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — Two nurses who scuffled with one of Robert F. Kennedy’s sons say they were just doing their job when they tried to stop him from taking his newborn off a New York maternity ward.

Anna Margaret Lane says Douglas Kennedy twisted her arm when she tried to intervene on Jan. 7 in Mount Kisco. She says he told her he didn’t have to obey her because the baby was his.

Hospital guidelines require written permission to remove newborns from the ward.

Cari Maleman Luciano says Kennedy kicked her and she “went flying through the air.”

They spoke today on NBC “Today.” NBC New York aired the interview Wednesday night.

Kennedy is charged with child endangerment and harassment.

His lawyer has accused the nurses of cashing in on his client.

Hospital guidelines are not law and nurses need to realize that. Just like when they try to intimidate you into signing that you are leaving against medical advice. No one can force you to sign anything you don't want to sign.

Hospital guidelines are in place for the protection of patients, visitors and staff. This guy was in the wrong and should have adhered to hospital policy. Had the tables been turned and a baby was being taken out of the hospital by someone other than the parent, all hell would have broken loose that procedures were NOT followed and the nursing staff would have been blamed for not stopping the abduction. He was out of line. He needs to suck it up, apologize and make things right with the nurses he pushed down on to the floor.
