See what you haters done started??

The NY State Health Department actually went and investigated this Upper East Side hospital as if Blue Ivy Carter was the first kid ever born there whose parents could afford to buy out the hospital and its staff.

And guess what they found…

State health officials on Wednesday dismissed complaints that patients in a hospital neonatal unit were mistreated while Beyonce was there giving birth to her and Jay-Z’s daughter.

They had received two complaints about Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital, one made anonymously, the other from someone who had learned about the matter through the media, a health department spokesman said. Officials reviewed the complaints and dismissed them Wednesday night, spokesman Jeffrey Gordon said without elaborating.

The hospital, a popular choice for the rich and famous from late philanthropist Brooke Astor to “30 Rock” star Tina Fey, said it was conducting its own probe.

Beyonce gave birth to the couple’s baby, Blue Ivy Carter, at the hospital on Saturday.
Media reports said Beyonce and Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, paid $1 million to take over a floor and their security guard blocked parents from the neonatal unit for hours. The hospital denied the reports, saying the couple paid the standard rate for an executive suite without disclosing what that is.

One new mother, Rozz Nash-Coulon, told The Associated Press that her twins, born Dec. 28, were in the neonatal unit and, starting Friday, intense security measures made it a struggle to see them as guards directed hallway traffic.

“Once they checked in there was high security everywhere,” she said Monday. “It looked like the president was on our floor. The hospital’s security cameras were taped over. Internal windows from the hallways into the ward were blacked out.”

The hospital’s executive director was heading up its own inquiry into the complaints, hospital spokeswoman Barbara Osborn said. The hospital was interviewing parents who had children in the newborn wing when Jay-Z and Beyonce were there, she said.

“We have spoken to seven out of the 10,” she said. “None have reported being stopped from seeing their babies.”

But two of the other three ran STRAIGHT to the media, LOL.

Elsewhere in “Seven Degrees Of Blue Ivy,” Jennifer Hudson had some advice for new Mommy Banger Bey. Hit the flip to peep what she had to say and a look at the room where the crown-princess of Brooklyn was born.
