Safeguards in place to protect babies from abduction in Vancouver hospitals
After a baby was stolen from a Quebec maternity ward Monday, many are wondering what systems are in place to ensure something similar doesn’t happen here.
Health authorities have been reluctant to get into too much detail about their security systems, but Vancouver Coastal Health has given a few examples of safeguards their facilities have in place.
St. Paul’s Hospital has locked doors in the maternity area, and nurses can see people wanting to enter on video before granting access.
