    Offended Hospital Causes 5 Month Old To Be Taken From Parents

    Offended Hospital Causes 5 Month Old To Be Taken From Parents

    Alex and Anna Nikolayev are the proud parents of a five month old son named Sammy. It is their first child and like many first time parents, they have been over cautious and protective of little Sammy, especially since he was born with a heart murmur. From the time of Sammy’s birth, they have been taking him to see doctors including a cardiologist to monitor his condition. They have kept every well-baby appointment made for Sammy, many of those appointments were with the doctors and staff at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento.

    Not all of those appointments at Sutter have gone well. Anna described one visit there when a nurse came in and administered antibiotics to Sammy. When she asked the nurse what the antibiotics were for, the nurse said she had no idea. A doctor later told Anna that Sammy should not have been given the antibiotics. This was one of two visits to Sutter where Anna said Sammy was not treated correctly and caused her to start being concerned about them.
    Even with her concerns, Anna took Sammy back to Sutter a couple of weeks ago when he displayed flu-like symptoms. After the initial treatment for the flu-like illness, Sammy was admitted to the pediatric ICU so they could monitor his condition and his heart. According to Anna, several days after Sammy was admitted to the ICU, the doctors began to discuss the possibility of having to perform heart surgery on Sammy.

    Anna decided that she wanted a second opinion from a different doctor at a different hospital. This is what people are advised to do all the time, to get a second opinion. But in this case, it was very important for Anna to get the second opinion because of the other mistakes that the hospital had made. She later stated:
    “If we got the one mistake after another, I don’t want to have my baby have surgery in the hospital where I don’t feel safe.”
    Anna then immediately took Sammy out of Sutter Memorial Hospital and took him to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center to get a second opinion. While at the hospital, the police showed up and insisted on seeing Anna and Sammy. They told Anna that they had received a report from Sutter Memorial Hospital that Sammy’s health was in danger.

    The doctor who saw Sammy at Kaiser said that he was safe to go home with his parents and that the baby was in no danger. After talking to Anna, seeing Sammy smiling and reading the doctor’s report, the police were satisfied and left.

    Evidently the doctors and staff at Sutter were offended that Anna wanted to seek a second opinion because the day after the two hospital visits, police and Child Protective Services showed up at their house. Alex met them outside the door and says that the police pushed him against the house and then smacked him down to the ground. The police then opened the door without asking permission and entered the house. Anna, who was frightened to death, turned her camera on to record what was happening. She recorded one of the police officers telling her:
    “I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist, and don’t fight me ok?”
    The policeman took Sammy from them and turned him over to the CPS agent. They told the shocked and frightened parents that they had a report that Sammy had been severely neglected and that an investigation was being launched.

    Alex and Anna have retained an attorney to help them sort the whole thing out. Their attorney says that there are absolutely no signs of neglect and that the exact opposite is true. The parents have never missed an appointment and they have the doctor’s records from Kaiser indicating that Sammy was okay to go home and that he was not in any danger.

    Anna was allowed to visit Sammy in the hospital for 1 hour since his kidnapping and that visit was supervised. They hope to be able to get everything straightened up with a judge in the next few days, according to their attorney. In the meantime, Anna is a frightened wreck and Alex says that this kind of treatment reminds him of being back in a communist country.

    After the first two mistakes or questionable visits at Sutter, I would never have taken Sammy back there to begin with. Their treatment of Sammy reminds me of the shady mechanics who tell you that they need to replace half a dozen parts on your car when you only took it to have an oil change and lube job done. It seems that the doctors were offended that anyone would question their expertise by seeking a second opinion. That kind of treatment and attitude would raise red flags with me and should with anyone else.

    We all need to pray for Anna and Alex that this mess can be corrected quickly and little Sammy is returned to his parents, before the doctors have a chance to go ahead with their proposed heart surgery. After all, CPS has assumed legal guardianship of Sammy and if they listen only to the doctors of Sutter, it is in the realm of possibility that CPS could give them permission to go forward with the surgery without the parents’ consent or knowledge.

    This story, “Sacramento couple fights to get their baby boy back from authorities,” is so infuriating; I don’t know how to describe it. In the follow up, “Sacramento couple still unclear why CPS took their baby boy after dispute with doctors,” we learn that, according to the couple’s defense lawyer, CPS is stalling to keep him from knowing how to argue his case. They are pursuing a strategy of not answering the phone and sending him elsewhere for documents he is supposed to have for court and which they are legally obligated to provide for him. They had, at last report, successfully kept him from the information so that he is going to have to go to court and “wing it.”
    The husband and father said it all: “It seems like parents have no right whatsoever.”
    I guess you could disagree and say Alex Nikolayev are exaggerating the situation he and his wife, Anna, are facing with their baby son. After all, they have the “right” to beg to get their baby boy back after CPS took him without any hearing. They have the “right” to request and receive permission for the mother to visit her son for one hour under careful supervision. They have the “right” to ask for a hearing after days and days of not having their child so that someday, maybe, they might get their child back.

    It will be interesting to see if we will ever find out how the Powers That Be in the CPS bureaucracy in Sacramento, CA, decided to abduct this particular child. While we can’t know yet, the story allows the possibility that a hospital decided that the child’s parents were being too independent of their guidance. As reported, Anna found a nurse at Sutter Memorial Hospital giving her infant son, Sammy, unnecessary antibiotics. Feeling less and less sure about the hospital, the couple took Sammy to another hospital for a second opinion, when the doctors started recommending heart surgery. It was after the second hospital released him to his parents to take home that cops showed up, hands on handguns, with CPS. They took Sammy away.
    There is no question that Sammy was never in immediate danger. CPS did not rescue him from harm; they simply abducted him. Whatever, CPS thinks the parents are guilty of, the point here is that they have never been tried and convicted of anything. All the Nikolayev’s rights have been suspended. Furthermore, CPS has the power to use delaying tactics so that they can now blackmail the couple into signing some kind of confession or agreement that retroactively legitimizes CPS tactics and grants them power over the family.
    Everything about how our republic is supposed to operate is turned upside down by these CPS tactics. People suffer a punishment far worse than fines or personal imprisonment—the kidnapping of a child—without even knowing the substance of the accusation against them. And the police in every case I’ve ever heard of always act as the hired toughs of CPS who are employed to intimidate the parents into submitting to their will.
