Safe Haven is a law aimed to protect babies younger than 90 days old. An individual may drop off an infant at a Safe Haven location, which includes hospitals, police stations and fire stations. The person surrendering the baby may disclose the biological father or mother’s name, date of birth, and any pertinent medical health information and if there is any tribal affiliation, but is not required to.
Each Lovelace hospital has a bright yellow Safe Haven Sign on the exterior of our hospitals to signify our hospitals are a Safe Haven location.
