Infant Identification and Safety

Safety for you and your baby is our #1 priority.

Once your baby is born, mom, baby, and one other person designated by mom (usually her partner) will receive ID bands with numbers that match. Numbers are matched again at discharge. For safety reasons, additional bands cannot be issued to other support persons.

We have many security features on our unit such as:

  • Locked unit
  • Same nurse cares for mom and baby
  • All staff wear a pink picture ID
  • Babies are only transported in their cribs

"Rooming-in" (caring for your baby at your bedside) also helps to ensure that your baby stays safely by you and minimizes separation from your infant.
