Beyonce Baby Drama

Health Dept. INVESTIGATING

The NY State Health Department is investigating complaints from new parents who claim they were mistreated by the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital while Beyonce was giving birth in the VIP room.

TMZ broke the story ... several parents are considering filing a lawsuit against LHH -- claiming they were neglected by staff and prevented from visiting their newborns ... due to the drama surrounding the superstar.

Now, a rep for the Health Dept. tells the NY Daily News, "Whenever we receive a complaint, we look into it. It’s not necessarily an investigation. It could be a review. Most likely in this case, it would be an investigation.”

It's unclear how many parents complained -- but as we previously reported, a whole bunch of people were griping about the situation during a breastfeeding class a few days ago.

5:49 PM PST -- The NY Health Dept. has announced it has reviewed and DISMISSED the complaints filed against the hospital.

However, a spokesperson for Lenox says the hospital will conduct its own internal investigation into allegations about the mistreatment of maternity patients.

Well if I had been at the hospital and denied access to my baby I would have been calling the police and my attorney. I am surprised that if this really happened that some half crazed new parent didn't call anyone.

I hope all these alleged disgruntled 'patients' realize the lawyers will be the only winners, and their greed, because that is all this is, will leave them with filing false charges and being countersued for the hospitals legal expenses.

Yes, I heard the same story in a major spanish television station. Parents of newborns within the same hospital had complained that some of them couldn't even see their own children. Due to lack of "special" treatment of the duo stars. Apparently the superstars paid a large sum of money to have a level of the hospital to themselves. Good for the people sueing them.

First of all they don't have to comment on anything. They never do. They don't have respond to stupidity. She isn't god but she sure don't have to defend her self ;only the guilty do that right away like those morons the kardashians or linsey Lohan.

Thank you. They don't read. They just want to bash her. Beyonce isn't an attention whore so stop putting her in that category.

Of course the"Hollywood Crowd" get the VIP treatment from resturants to medical centers.It's so true they do check in with AKA name.Tight security and sometimes they do clear out the floor & block the nursery too.Which is very disruptive for the other parents.Plus they do leave in the middle of the night and through their back door avoid the papparazzis.
