Infant abduction is a severe issue that all healthcare facilities must prevent by maintaining a safe environment. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) reported 133 infant abduction cases from healthcare facilities, and about 95% of abductions result in litigation.
This program will provide the CMS and TJC standards on preventing infant and pediatric abductions. Our expert will discuss complying with these standards and highlight five measures healthcare facilities can take to prevent abductions. Additionally, the program will explore the NCMEC’s revised prevention guidelines and infant abduction responses that all hospitals and birthing centers should be familiar with.
An infant abducted from a healthcare facility would be a tragic event for both the parents and the facility, as well as a media nightmare. Make sure your facility is up-to-date on the proper procedures.
