Gleneagles Hospital uses RFID to prevent baby mismatch

TODAY, news article (extract), October 4, 2013:


Gleneagles Hospital has introduced a new feature to its infant identification system to give parents of newborns greater assurance and peace of mind.

In addition to the usual two identity bands that are placed on babies’ ankles, the hospital has added another feature — radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.

These tags will be attached to the infant, the infant’s cot and the mother, and an alert will sound if the infant is placed in the wrong cot or handed to the wrong mother.
