From the news article:
"After 11 p.m., even doctors and nurses were barred from entering the fourth floor, prompting one doc to complain that he had patients to see.
In an effort to keep images from leaking to the public, hospital workers placed tape over security cameras and are forcing employees to turn in cell phones when they arrive for their shifts, a source said.
Several security guards were spotted patrolling the perimeter of the hospital Saturday night."

"Forgive my language, but giant FUCK YOU to Beyonce, Jay Z and Lennox Hill Hospital in Brooklyn. My cousins Neil and Roz had beautiful twin baby girls who were born six weeks early and are currently in the natal ICU unit trying to get healthy enough to go home ... but mother and father weren't allowed to be with their own babies because of Jay Z and Beyonce's thugs, who (with the hospital's blessing) closed off that ENTIRE WING ... separating parents from their infants so they can have their own celebrity entourage come visit without having to interact with the "little people". Okay ... I can understand a wish for privacy ... BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER PARENTS AND THEIR INFANT CHILDREN and reducing other families to tears. I wish I could say I'll never buy your crappy ass music but I never would have anyway ... so I'll just have to settle for telling everyone I know what incredible douchebags you are."
From another news article:
"Hip-hop parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z were in lullaby land with their baby girl Blue Ivy Carter Sunday, but one new dad was fuming over the velvet rope in the maternity ward that kept him away from his twins.
Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by Beyoncé’s bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub. Coulon griped that he’s been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple’s private security.
He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out. “Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” said Coulon, a contractor from Bedford-Stuyvesant.
“They should have been more strategic about it,” he said. “These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology.” Lenox Hill staffers, speaking anonymously, told the Daily News that Beyoncé and Jay-Z paid $1.3 million to seal off and redecorate a wing at the upper East Side hospital, in a super-strict effort to protect their privacy.
Beyoncé gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, Saturday night on the sixth floor, near the NICU, a hospital staffer told The News.
“Some people were upset,” the staffer said. “I heard a gentleman say he couldn’t go upstairs to see his baby [Saturday\]. Hospital spokeswoman Anne Silverman said she had not personally heard of the complaints.
“We take patient satisfaction very seriously,” Silverman told The News. “This is the first time I’m hearing about it.” Coulon scoffed at the double-standard treatment.
“I know they spent $1.3 million and I'm just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not okay,” Coulon said. “My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins. She is sore. Nobody needs this.” Coulon insisted he wasn’t the only new parent upset by the hip-hop hassles in the hospital.
“This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you’re a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children,” fumed Coulon, whose wife, whose wife delivered two premature and underweight girls on Wednesday.
“To have that circus roll into town and ruin our parade was unpleasant,” he said.
