Shortly after famous pop singer Beyonce Knowles gave birth at New York's Lenox Hill Hospital on January 10th, complaints from other parents in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that private security disrupted their own patient access reached the media.

Parents visiting their twin daughters in the neonatal intensive care unit complained to the media, saying they were stopped by private security and saw security cameras taped over with paper. Rozz Nash-Coulan, the mother of the twins, says this put her own babies at risk. Another father said he was kept out of the neonatal unit for three hours as his wife and newborn child waited.

The hospital and the health department have yet to receive any formal complaints about the incident. The health department said it would not investigate the incident, though declined to comment whether it would if it received complaints.
