Albany- Phoebe Putney Hospital is taking new steps to protect Southwest Georgia's newest arrivals. Phoebe instituted new security measures to restrict and better monitor access to its pediatric, labor and delivery, and mother and baby units.

Nurses say, safety is a growing concern everywhere.

"Recent events have definitely demonstrated that what happened in Atlanta in the courthouse, what happened the other day in Michigan with the schools, could happen here. So, part of state of the art technology is making sure all of our families and babies and children are safe," said Alicia Lang, Assistant Vice President Mother and Children, Phoebe Putney Hospital.

Visitors to the infant and children's floors must use the B elevators. More camera surveillance will be used to monitor visitors to those areas.
