Conference abstract (extract), June 28, 2010:
RFID technology can effectively enhance patient experience as well as minimising the risk of infection by nursing staff due to the elimination of unnecessary contact with infectious patient. Patient safety could also be enhanced as high fever alert can be made with real-time frequent recording of the body temperature in the computer system whilst waste of paper and record process can also be eliminated. Application of such system is recommended in other isolation ward settings.
