RFID ensures correct mother-infant-cot matching at Raffles Hospital


Raffles Hospital has implemented a radio frequency identification (RFID) system which incorporates state-of-the-art technology to ensure the highest standards of safety and security for infants in all their maternity wards. All mothers who have just delivered at the hospital will have an RFID mother tag worn on their wrist, an RFID infant tag worn on the infant’s ankle, and an RFID cot tag attached to the infant’s cot. This three-in-one system ensures that, at all times, an infant is always brought to the right mother and always placed in the right cot, giving mothers and caregivers added peace of mind.
