Who's in charge of your newborn? You or the hospital?

A father (a Kennedy too, Douglas Kennedy, son of RFK) tried to take his newborn outside the hospital to "get some fresh air" when two nurses tried to stop him. In the process, one was knocked down. Now he's being charged with misdemeanor child endangerment and harassment.
Should parents be allowed to take their newborns outside the hospital or is the hospital right in preventing a parent from taking their newborn outside? Do you think this father should be charged? If he hurt the nurses (it looks like he did on the video), then I guess I understand those charges, but child endangerment? Really?
Here's the story and the video of the incident: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/02/surveillence-video-shows-robert-f-kennedys-son-in-scuffle-with-nurses/
