Parents Want Second Opinion on Infant’s Heart Surgery: Baby Taken From Them – No Heart Surgery Necessary

Alex Nikolayev and his wife Anna refused to let a doctor rush their five-month old son into heart surgery. They left the hospital and went directly to another hospital. The second hospital released Mom, Dad and son. The next day Police came to the house, arrested Alex outside, cuffed him, took the keys out of his pocket, and once when inside, and took the baby from Anna, with the help of an overweight social worker. Note that the parents had an “antagonist” relationship with the doctor at the first hospital, Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento, California. Emotional video below.

The situation started about two weeks ago when the Nikolayevs took Sammy to the hospital to be treated for flu symptoms. He stayed in he intensive care unit for about a week.

Sammy also has a heart murmur and has seen regular treatment for the ailment. Doctors at Sutter started talking about the need for immediate heart surgery to correct the issue, according to the Nikolayevs.

But they weren’t happy with the care they got at Sutter and didn’t trust doctors there. Anna Nikolayev said doctors and nurses made mistakes like giving her child antibiotics that a doctor later said her baby didn’t need.

Police showed up at the second hospital but left when medical staff there said that the baby was safe. That was far from the end. The next dayPolice and Child Protective Services showed up at the Nikolayev home and took the baby back to Sutter Memorial. Days later a judge ordered that the little boy be moved to Stanford Medical Center, and the parents were relieved but the judge has ruled that social worker will come to the home to oversee the child. Apparently, heart surgery is not a necessity and these parents have gone through this horror because of Sutter’s staff.

America looks more like a Police State everyday. Excellent interview with the Nikolayevs. Here’s another story of a Pennsylvania family who’s child was taken away because the mother had questions about their newborn receiving the Hep B vaccination. The parents didn’t refuse, they just questioned and wanted a second opinion. A social worker took the child and vaccinated it anyway. The mother was sent home without her child.

    It is nanny state California. Yet, it seem that daily throughout the country we are approaching “1984”. What is also surprising is that abortions are OK, but a second medical opinion requires police and social services.

    I do believe I would sue the first hospital and the doctor involved.

  • So, America wake up! You have put your head in the sand long enough for these asswipes to steal your freedoms. Every person in that local government needs a good horse wiping. How about if the rest of us make a judgement call and take their kids!

    It takes a village to raise a child, whether you need it or not, like it or not, and evidently at gunpoint, too!
