A nurse taped new born's mouth

A Philippine hospital has launched an investigation after photographs of a newborn baby gagged with adhesive tape went viral online; with the father a nurse told “Your baby was too noisy.”

His mouth covered with clear tape as he lay on a sheet. The Cebu Puericulture Centre and Maternity House in the central city of Cebu told AFP it was investigating a complaint by Ryan Noval and Jasmine Badocdoc that they had found their five-day-old son at its nursery with his mouth taped over.

Noval wrote that the couple complained to hospital authorities after they were told by a nurse: “Your baby was too noisy so I put that over his mouth.”
