Sanford, FL, hospital tightens security after baby taken

Orlando Sentinel, April 22, 2008
Central Florida Regional Hospital now requires anyone wanting to visit a newborn baby to sign in, get a hospital-issued photo badge and have all baby-sized bags and packages inspected when they leave. The facility proposed these changes to Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration, which faulted the hospital for security lapses at when a 1-day-old baby was abducted in March. The agency approved the plan.
