The Doctors discuss an Illinois case involving parents who refused vitamin K shots in the hospital and as a result, their newborns were taken away for 12 hours while DCFS got involved. The parents are now suing the hospital, and attorney Anahita Sedaghatfar weighs in on this case. She shares that parents don’t have an absolute right to refuse medical care for their children, and a lot of people don’t know that. Can parents legally refuse a vitamin K shot, or is it considered neglect?
