They should have paperwork at the hospital or should know where to direct you. Call the administrative offices and complaint that you're not getting any help.

How long ago was this? Go to Vital Records. In TN you have up to a year to have the correction done, even then they will draw a line through it and type the correct name above it. You can see it on the long form but on the short form you don't. If it has been over a year (in TN) you need a court order. If you require a court order (in TN) be sure to have the court order specifically state to REMOVE the previous name, if you don't they will draw a line through it. 

I worked for Vital Records in amendments for five years.

County courthouse. Hospital won't do jack to help, it's out of their hands once it's sent off.

We had to have it changed at the court house for our daughter. I would go where you would get the birth cerificate at.

Ok i love love the hospital was amazing but they did mess up on her middle name and on the paper work it has another mother name confirming a vaccination I never wanted for my baby . I have all these hospital papers saying she got all these shot , even tho I never signed the ok it was another mother cheryl . I wonder if the hospital never told cheryl that her child was never vaccined
