The Nation

August 26, 1986

A blind man filed complaints against 10 hospitals in New York because they refused to allow his guide dog to accompany him into the delivery room for his daughter's birth. Frank Perino, 43, said he and the dog attended natural childbirth classes at St. Vincent's Hospital on Staten Island but the hospital told him he could not bring the dog into the labor room. Perino also filed complaints against nine other hospitals that refused to allow his dog into the labor room.
