I thought her last name was Silva Not Sutter!

I hate the fact that just because your child is in the hospital that we as parents get treated as though they are not ours but actually belong to the hospital. I swear the name on the bands, nameplate and Birth Certificate was Silva NOT Sutter. I guess I will have to go double check. I hate the fact that they do whatever they want whenever they want with my child WITHOUT my consent. I have been looking at transferring her to a different hospital but Tricare says they won't pay unless it is medically necessary. They do not care if I am not satisfied with the quality of care she is receiving at the current hospital. GRRRRR I feel like she is being held hostage! she is 35 1/2 weeks and they are not nippling her!!!!! I am so beyond pissed at the incompetence shown in this NICU over the past 2 weeks! All they are doing is buying the hospital more $$ by going as slow as they are with her. I just want to scream! Do you think they will get the picture if I cross out Silva on the sign on her bed and write Sutter?? I almost want to tell them that since they seem to think she is theirs, to just call me when they decide they do not want her anymore.

Im so sorry your having such a rough time, but I dont think they nipple babies on CPAP. I do know with Brandon we really pushed for everything, we pushed to feed him for the first time, we pushed to have him moved out of his isolette (it was OFF all day!) and we pushed for his early homecoming. He was ready though, they knew it and we knew it. I would talk with your social worker about it and see what they say. Im pretty sure they are not nippling because of the CPAP though. Good luck hun, and big big hugs!!

I know exactly how you feel. But, I do agree with the previous person that they will not nipple a baby on cpap...we went through this with my daughter and I hated it. I hope that things start getting better for you soon. The NICU road is a long and bumpy one unfortunately. Continued prayers for all of you! (((hugs)))

that is frustrating. I am so sorry...Have you asked them about implementing the nipple? What are they saying? That seems absurd.

I know it is hard sitting around waiting. ((HUGS))

Sorry you are having a rough time. They didn't try to nipple my daughter till she was off cpap and on to hight flow cannula. As far as the last name goes, my daughter was considered baby girl mays her entire stay but her birth cert. said elliotte. I think it's standard to give the mother's last name until discharged.

I'm pretty sure Sutter is the name of the hospital, Dani was venting her frustration at them acting like Soli belonged to them when she's a Silva through and through..... (Correct me if i'm wrong Dani!) Hugs... I saw on FB that you said you got it worked out, been anxiously looking for an update here and on FB to see whats going on! Post when you get time... and Happy Birthday Corbin!!

Hugs!
