WI: Sex offender sues hospital that won’t let him visit son, 9

    My probation officer said I was not allowed to visit my injured child in the children’s hospital and that she would have me arrested. I told my p.o.that I was going anyway, I let my attorney know I about the situation. I don’t believe they ever spoke. She didn’t arrest me and actually neither one of us ever made mention of it again.

      Sometimes you just have to do the things you need to do without involving bureaucrats who have their own agenda (often CYA) in mind. Good on you for going anyway and I hope your child is on the mend.

      I am glad this story has resurfaced so I don’t have to go digging for an earlier post to comment about my own recent experience…

      Last week my daughter came down with flu and had to stay home from school for a few days. Last Sunday on her 3rd day of Tamiflu she developed severe abdominal pain and I took her to the ER. 5 hours (!) and battery of tests later we went home with no diagnosis (reaction to Tamiflu, gas?) and, thank God, the pain subsided over the next couple of days. At no time during our visit was I asked for any form of physical ID beyond our insurance card. I was asked my name as they completed paperwork, but nothing beyond that. Their focus was my daughter and getting paid, that was all.
      Now, had my wife brought her in and I went in later to visit, I don’t know what their procedure would have been, but, thankfully, I had no issues that day. Hopefully it will be loooong time before hospital access is tested again.

    “He called me this morning and he was crying on the phone,” Yates said, “telling me how much he needed me and how scared he was and where am I at? ‘Dad where are you? How come you won’t come? I miss you, I need you.'”

    Heart wrenching. The best medicine for this kid is his parent’s love, yet the hospital denies it to him.

    I hope Adele takes a pound of flesh from children’s hospital Milwaukee. It seems we get more Florida-ish every year. As a side note I remember being horrified when on Nov 14, 2013 a gunman was shot near the neonatal unit at this hospital. F’…ed up priorities at this hospital. But make sure you pay for the great care your child gets…….. Even if you are not allowed to be their parent at children’s hospital. Milw

    Could someone please bring a case on behalf of the child!

    This should be an easy case to win. I bet this is settled out of court. However it would be better if this ends up in front of the judge so all hospitals will know they can’t deny a parent’s right to be with their children in a hospital when this is the most important time for a child to have the comfort and care of their parents. It’s amazing that the staff at any hospital could be so cruel.

    Thankfully, this case is getting a lot of media attention. “Chicago Tribune”, “Time” magazine, etc. 👍
