    What tragedies ensure from such stupidity. Imagine losing custody of a newborn? I'd be traumatized for life. WTF could the administrators of this hospital have been thinking?

    Mindless compliance with some, no doubt well intentioned, poorly written law. Zombie bureaucrats working in a sea of regulations and policies that remove all possible application of reason and judgement.

    I hope that family sues that hospital and its administrators right into the ground. How evil.

    My guess is the hospital has some kind of limited liability here but the hospital does not have the power to take someone's child. Only the police can do that. Same goes for the woman who nearly got thrown back into the prison system by a separate group of bureaucratic nincompoops. (note: thread title:theme)

    Sidenote: how cool are the Mythbuster's dudes. :clap2: That show rocks.
