Surrendered Newborn Infants (Monitor) – Failed 

CS/HB 899 (Canady) and CS/SB 870 (Burton) authorize the use of newborn infant safety devices by hospitals, emergency medical services stations and fire stations. The devices are used to safely surrender newborn infants and must meet designated safety requirements. If an agency chooses to use the device, it must be monitored 24 hours per day, and the alarm must be checked at least twice per week. (Taggart)
