ABSTRACT
The article reports on the concerns over the use of scrubs to facilitate infant abduction after an attempted kidnapping at the hospital in Sanford, Florida. The incident shows how scrubs worn by many health care workers can provide an easy disguise to criminals who want to blend in on a hospital. In fact, two hospitals in Lubbock, Texas, were hit by separate kidnappers using scrubs in 2006 and 2007.
