Even with all of the overwhelming evidence that Sarah Palin faked the pregnancy where she claimed that Trig Palin is her biological son, there are people who sincerely believe that this couldn't be the case. They are not Palin supporters, but they don't believe that a hoax of this magnitude could be pulled off at a hospital. "How, could she have gotten away with this when there are so many doctors, nurses, techs, ect, that would see her and be involved with her care?"
Well, it actually wouldn't be that difficult. Not if you have someone on the inside who is willing to go along with it. Especially if that person was your doctor. I will explain how this could easily be done.
First of all, I want to say that while it is my firm belief that her doctor, Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, was her partner in this hoax, it doesn't necessarily mean that anyone else at the hospital was aware of it. Childbirth is event that may or may not require medical intervention. There have been babies who have been born at home, either planned with a midwife or as a surprise. There have been babies who were born while traveling in cars, trying to get to the hospital. Babies don't absolutely have to have a doctor or nurse in the same room with the mother in order to be born. In fact, with childbirth, doctors and nurses are there mainly as support to monitor the mother and baby to make sure neither develop problems. They monitor the mother's vital signs and fetal heart rate. Periodically, they check the mother's cervix to see if it has thinned out and dilated enough to start pushing.
The only time it is absolutely necessary to have more medical personal involved is if there was a need to perform a C-section. That obviously wasn't the case here.
So, if the governor of the state of Alaska, decides that she only wants her doctor to attend her while she is at the hospital, and the doctor is willing to do that, the hospital will allow that. It frees up a nurse for them to attend to other patients. It would not be unreasonable to assume that a high ranking official of the state might prefer her privacy.
The doctor would have her chart in the room and put on it what she wanted. In fact, I believe that this is exactly what had to happen for Sarah Palin to have been able to stay in that hospital. If other staff members had the chart, they would have every right to look through it. If an ethical member of the staff had gotten it, and saw all of the risk factors the 'pregnancy' had, there is a chance that they would have notified supervisors and other staff members. The hospital is not accredited to serve high risk pregnancies. Their policy is to transport them to Providence Alaska Medical Center where there is a NICU. Palingates did a excellent job going over and describing all of the inconsistencies of the story of the labor and delivery at the hospital. Please review this information if you haven't already.
Revisiting the questions surrounding Trig's birth.
Since the policy of the hospital is to transport women with high risk pregnancies Providence Medical Center in Anchorage, the statement that Palin had to be 'induced' would be a large red flag. If other hospital staff members were involved with her care, I imagine they would be questioning this. If an induction needed to be done, obviously there would be time to get her to a better equipped hospital.
The Palins arrived at night. It has been pointed out that they bypassed Providence Alaska Medical Center with his NICU and where Cathy Baldwin-Johnson had hospital staff privileges. There was utterly no reason for them to drive past a hospital near the airport that was better equipped to care for a high risk pregnancy and where her own doctor could care for her, to go to a smaller hospital that was not set up to care for high risk pregnancies. Not unless it would be much easier to get away with faking labor and delivery to go along with a faked pregnancy, then it would make sense.
Mat-Su Regional Hospital. This hospital is very small as hospitals go. It only has 74 beds at the time of this writing. At night, hospitals generally have a higher nurse/patient ratio. Things are just not as busy at night typically. If one area starts picking up, nurses can be pulled from another section. There are not as many eyes on the floor at night. Patients in L&D usually stay in their rooms. They do sometimes go out if they are walking the floor to try to get contractions to kick in or speed up, but for the most part, there are not a lot of people walking around in the corridor. This could be important. Why?
If this scenario is correct, at some point the baby will have to be brought in. I don't know if he was in a car outside, or already in the hospital with someone in another room, but at some point I believe that he has to be brought into Sarah Palin's room. Then he can go to the nursery after CBJ 'cleans him up', weighs and measures him, notes a 'apgar score' and completes the paperwork. There is going to be one time where it will be best to do this without being interrupted. That time is going to be the nurses change of shift. Hospital shifts generally run from 7-3, 3-11 and 11-7. The nighttime shift, 11-7, has the next shift coming in at approximately 6:30 am, where they all get together and sit down in a room to receive report. They have 30 minutes to pass information to the next shift about the patients that will be transferred to them.
There will be thirty minutes where they will be out of the halls and the corridors as they receive report.
