• Are New Pediatric "Child Abuse Specialists" Causing an Increase in Medical Kidnappings?

    Going to the Children’s Hospital? Bring Your Lawyer. New Pediatric Sub-specialty Appears to Correlate with Recent Epidemic of Medical Kidnappings. The rise in aggressive uses of CPS by doctors and hospitals in diagnosing "child abuse," extensively documented by MedicalKidnap.com, appears to parallel several new developments in the world of pediatric medicine. In 2010, the American Academy of Pediatrics certified a new sub-specialty in child abuse pediatrics, which requires a fellowship with a teaching hospital’s child protection unit and a separate board exam. The majority of the nation's 324 Child Abuse Pediatricians are housed within children's hospitals. This new subspecialty of pediatrics has generated questions regarding the investigatory or prosecutorial role assumed by child abuse pediatricians.

    hello

    We can certainly relate to these stories as we are currently going through the same thing. My grandson was a happy healthy 18 month old when he was picked up from daycare all bruised and scratched up. He became lethargic and started vomiting. My daughter took him to the urgent care center where he was not fully assessed as to his lethargy and low heart rate. The urgent care doctor was more concern about his bruise and bug bites on him and accused my doctor and son in law of abuse. After many weeks in the hospital my grandson heart condition and cause for his lethargy was a complete heart block requiring a permanent pacemaker. Throughout all this the child abuse doctor called CPS and the Virginia Beach detective and my daughter and son in law were interrogated for over 4 hours without any representation. They informed my daughter that my grandson had healing fractured ribs which was all a surprised to us as he was just at the doctor 3 weeks before for a check up and his flu shot. And just a month before for having acute respiratory distress where they took an X-ray and there were no fractures noted. My daughter has reported that my grandson had been coming home from daycare with bruises but yet CPS removed the child from my daughter and cleared the daycare without an investigation. On top of that the judge and CPS deemed that his biological father was a better fit for custody than myself and my husband even though he doesn't care for the child or provide for him in anyway. His biological father has 8 other children that he does not care for is married but has recently become engaged to another woman while he is still married. The Virginia Beach DHS and CPS deemed that he was fit to be a father. He is living in an unsavory neighborhood with a woman who has 3 children of her own by possibly 3 different men and her brother is a convicted murderer. Meanwhile my daughter and sonin law and all of us are going through hell to try to get our grandson back. ALL OF HIS DOCTORS - HIS CARDIOLOGISTS REPORTS THAT HIS HEART CONDITION WAS CONGENITAL AND A VIRUS ATTACKED HIS HEART BUT CPS REMOVED THE BABY FROM A LOVING HOME AND A SUPPORTIVE FAMILY WHO HAS NURTURED HIM FROM BIRTH

    I am writing this in hopes that someone can help us.

    We had adopted 2 children in 2013 both with Cystic Fibrosis from Bulgaria. Two weeks after arrival and three medical exams before departing country our 3 year old daughter had died from complications of her CF. The morning of her death we called 911 and our nightmare had began. Seven hours in a police we were later released after a doctor stated her death CF related. But during this 7 hour CPS became involved not to comfort but to assume our guilt. We were hounded for 6 months till we received her autopsy report and not once able to see our daughter. Two years later we adopted two more children both also Special needs. One child with HIV and other under laying medical conditions and the other child with spinal bifida and scolosis. While shopping at SAMS WAREHOUSE a cashier reported our children looking small and neglected, sickly looking.. Once again CPS back in our lives. ALL CHILDREN HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN SEEN BY MANY SPECIALIST YET CPS WOULD NOT LISTEN. To cut this story short these 3 children are now

    So I guess there needs to be another sub specialty for the need to watch the child abuse specialists. There is a line being crossed here that is a violation of civil rights. It seems that the misuse of medical authority is finally being exposed for what it is. Medical abuse is also a real issue that needs to be investigated. There seems to be no reunification plan or counciling for parents and children by authorities to keep the families together. Just remove the children, medically experiment on them then return them to parents, after the bad medicine creates further damage. These kids do not have a chance. The best interest of the child is not what the medical industry wants. These children are taken to be tortured and tormented by their medical predictors. This unholy practice needs to be stopped.
