Protecting Newborn Babies

Sri Kota Specialist Medical Centre uses RFID technology to protect against baby-swapping and babynapping.

Sri Kota Specialist Medical Centre (SKSMC) is a major private medical center in Malaysia.  SKSMC prides itself in delivering the best treatment for its patients and leading the way in the implementation of innovative technology.

Baby-swapping and babynapping are serious problems and a concern hospitals in Asia have struggled to solve in a way that is both cost effective and efficient; SKSMC is no different.  The hospital was in need of a solution that would provide would-be parents the peace of mind that their babies were well protected and in good hands.

RCG? RFID solution is now being used at the maternity wards of the Sri Kota Specialist Medical Centre.  RFID tags are placed around the ankles of newborn babies to track their location in real-time within the hospital.  RFID readers also record the identity of each nurse who passes an access point to collect a baby from the incubator.

The tracking of babies using RCG’s hospital solution has helped to lower the incidence of baby swapping or kidnapping -- hospital staff are immediately alerted when a baby is moved outside of an assigned area, and are made aware of the identity of those who have been in contact with the baby.  The accurate tracking capabilities and identification of babies and staff have also significantly saved the cost of deploying other security systems.  Staff can now go about their duties without having to worry about security.
