The administration at Northern Westchester Hospital is backing the two nurses involved in the mess with Douglas Kennedy and his newborn son.
The hospital, in a statement issued today, says patient safety is their priority and they are backing the two nurses — Anna Margaret Lane and Cari Maleman Luciano – who say that Kennedy kicked and grabbed them as they tried to prevent him from leaving the hospital with his two-day old child for some fresh air.
“We completely support the actions of our nursing staff in this case as they were clearly acting out of concern for the safety of the newborn baby,” Mark Vincent, a spokesman for the hospital, said in a statement.
The hospital’s support comes after Fox News chief, Roger Ailes, backed Kennedy and characterized him as an honest man and a great father.
“In my view, the real moral of this story should be don’t try to grab a baby from the arms of a loving father,” Ailes said.
