PMID:  12371245     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Progress has been made in reducing the number of infant abductions in the last five years, but there are still some serious problems for security and nursing managers, not the least of which is complacency. The article analyzes statistics on infant kidnapping which have been maintained by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) since 1983.
