I have a son in the nicu for 2.5 moths now the hospital is blocked me of my right to make medical decision for him. I was trespass from the hospital and dcf is investigating. Dcf has not taken custody of him and said they would not. But I don't even know what's tests study medication the hospital is experimenting on him. Even went to medicaid and blocked me from transfer him to another hospital. He has no medical conditions as of last Tuesday. Need legal help. No court or judge gave them any permission to experiment but I can even go there to see what's going on.
You need to immediately consult a local family law attorney who has experience with DCF cases. Avvo has a directory that may be a proper place to start.

There is not enough information here to determine whether there is a medical malpractice claim but obviously your priority is to get access to your son and be in a position to make the necessary medical decisions to get him the help he needs.
