At Swedish, we have invested in a number of advanced security measures to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable patients: newborns and infants.

Among these measures, we have installed closed-circuit video cameras to monitor the post-partum unit and nursery entrances. In addition to these efforts, we advise all patients to take extra precautions when infants are under their supervision within the hospital.

Some key suggestions include:

  • Don't have infants/newborns in your room while showering unless another adult is available to watch the child.
  • Don't leave the baby unsupervised for any period of time while in the hospital.
