Bellevue Medical Center is going the extra mile to make sure your baby is safe in the hospital.
Rachel and Jon Papik have noticed. They just had their daughter last night.
Jon says, "She was about a week late so we've been on alert for awhile."
One thing they are not on alert about...their daughter's safety while at Bellevue Medical Center.
Rachel says, "It gives us good peace of mind that our baby is being monitored and they know where she's at."
The hospital goes a step beyond the ankle monitoring bracelets.
Kris Wheeler, the Manager of Women and Infants says, "We use an umbilical cord clamp. It takes a special instrument to remove it."
Each baby wears one. It allows the nurses to track where every baby is on a computer, even when they are moving from room to room.
If someone gets to close to an exit door...
Wheeler says, "An alarm will sound. If it's a legitimate alarm the hospital issues a Code Pink. All departments are alerted."
The outside doors of the hospital lock down.
Bellevue Medical Center has never had any instances here, but a few weeks ago in California a woman dressed as a nurse. She took a tote bag in and tried to put a baby inside of it.
Wheeler says, "It's usually very typical. It's somebody posing as a hospital employee."
Nurses in the baby unit wear bright purple scrubs and special name tags. This allows parents to know they are the real deal.
Jon and Rachel aren't worried. Their only concern is naming their daughter.
Rachel says, "We have not chosen a name yet.. We definitely have narrowed it down to a few."
Before our story aired, the Papiks let us know they named their baby girl Maggie Elise.
