Safe Baby Site
NGH is also designated as a “Safe Baby Site”. The “Baby Moses Law” is the common name of the law authorizing a designated emergency infant care provider to take possession of a child appearing to be 60 days old or younger from the child’s parent, if the parent does not express intent to return for the child. More information concerning this law can be found in the Texas Family Code, Chapter 262, Subchapter D, Emergency Possession of Certain Abandoned Children. The purpose of this law is to encourage parents who abandon their children to do so with a designated emergency infant care provider rather than at a dangerous location. The law also protects parents from criminal prosecution when they deliver an unharmed child to a designated emergency infant care provider.
The NGH ambulance services is not just a “load and go” service. We are proud to have a very well-trained staff, including at least one Paramedic scheduled on every shift. We have two ambulances staffed and ready to go 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and each ambulance is stocked with the same first-line cardiac drugs that are stocked in the emergency room.
Our EMS Department continues to grow and change as improvements in the medical field are made.
