The woman who was denied entry into a North Carolina children’s hospital, charged with felonies and then accused of attempting to steal babies denied that’s what she was trying to do, according to a phone interview she did with TV station WECT.
Linda Mae Everett, 36, entered patient care areas without authorization on April 5 after she was denied initial entry into the children’s hospital at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, according to the hospital.
Hospital staff, upon seeing Everett did not have a visitor’s badge, alerted NHRMC police, who responded and questioned her. Based on Everett’s unauthorized entry into patient care areas, Everett was charged with three counts of felony breaking and entering.
Barbara Buechler, hospital administrator for the Women’s and Children’s unit says the hospital has an extensive layered security system in place, and the first line of defense was breached.
