Leading Provider in Infant Security
Alarm Notification System
Adaptive to Existing Systems
Infant Protection and Patient Security Solution
Patients wear small, lightweight transmitters that continuously “check-in” with the system. Therefore if a patient is too close to a monitored exit or door lock, then an alarm sounds, and staff members are instantly notified, all via their wireless devices.
Asset management systems add quantifiable ROI for hospital systems. It is not enough to just know what assets you have, you need to know where those assets are located. Organizations with mobile asset equipment should know where their assets are at all times.
The SAFE PLACE Asset Management is fully scalable to meet any healthcare facility’s needs. Tagging equipment is intuitive, the tag can be adhered using double-sided tape or a zip tie. Adding a new asset to the Seeker Search Engine is easy and is accomplished by simply scanning the QR code. The Asset Locating tag is low impact. It is the smallest active asset tag on the market.
Elopement Management Solution
SAFE PLACE® transmitters worn around the wrist or ankle can reduce elopement while supporting caregiver workflow. Our comprehensive solution provides the latest in discreet exit monitoring for infant and pediatric security. SAFE PLACE® reduces the risk of patient abductions and related situations through safe and reliable exit monitoring for patients wearing small, lightweight transmitters.
Enterprise Software integrates infant, pediatric, and elopement management solutions on a single platform. Staff can respond to alarms on their mobile devices using a web-based mobile client, an Android or IOS app, or your existing Wi-Fi infrastructure.
This software is supported by our Quality Dashboard Module. In addition, this optional feature offers a comprehensive set of reporting and analytical tools and identifies the true performance of your system and staff. Helping you identify areas of strength and opportunities to improve efficiency.
Umbilical Cord Transmitter
Immediately following delivery, a nurse activates the transmitter to enroll the infant. Then applies the clamp to the umbilical cord stump. The transmitter remains on the infant for the duration of the baby’s hospital stay. There is no need to adjust or remove it until the baby goes home.
- Attached to standard umbilical cord clamps, no proprietary banding is required
- Communicates with Alarming Band Receivers and antennas
Staff Protection Solutions
SAFE PLACE Staff Protection Solutions is a panic button that gives employees peace of mind that if they need it, help is on the way at the touch of a button.
- Real-time locating system (RTLS)
- Not dependent on facility WiFi
- Scalable: easily expand the system as needed
- PoE or local USB power for Gateways
- Small, Compact, and discreet buttons with multiple wearing options
The Baby Check™ transmitter is used in conjunction with an Infant transmitter. The transmitter is lightweight and compact. The wireless SAFE PLACE® Baby Check™ provides an added layer of protection against human error and a potential mismatch, reducing a hospital’s liability and giving patients added peace of mind.
- A small transmitter is mounted outside the mother’s room that corresponds with the Safe Place transmitter already secured on her infant.
- When a baby is brought to the door, nurses press the check button; a green light flashes on the Baby Check transmitter to indicate a match.
- In the case of a mismatch, a red light will flash to notify the nurse.
RFT CARES™ Enterprise app
The RFT CARES™ Enterprise app connects with our Enterprise software that powers infant and pediatric security.
Connect our Enterprise Software to Staff Mobile Devices to Enable:
- Faster & More Precise Responses to Alerts
- Improved Accuracy on Care Reporting
- Requesting Assistance Without Leaving Patient’s Room
What Makes SAFE PLACE® Stand Out Compared to Others?
The SAFE PLACE® system immediately alerts staff through software and has a variety of optional mobile devices in the event that:
- A transmitter is near an exit
- There is a mother-baby mismatch
- There is an unauthorized attempt to remove a patient from a monitored area
- Banding is loose, cut, tampered with, or removed
- A transmitter has not “checked in” with the system
SAFE PLACE® is a non-exciter-based system. Meaning essential components operate independently from a server. So, in the event of a server shut-down:
- Transmitters, Omni Antennas, Alarming Band Receivers, and DouLink Antennas all still work
- If a transmitter is to close, the door or elevator at a monitored exit will lock and/or deactivate with a local alarm
- Staff is notified of unauthorized patient movement at exit controllers and Staff Alert panels
Why Not Wifi
The Wi-Fi hype is perhaps the most damaging and costly in the health care industry. Therefore, stands to gain significant advantages from applications of real-time tracking technology. Here are the most common problems you will see in wifi based systems;
- Poor Location Determination
- Wifi Access Point Can’t Triangulate
- Access Points-Not Enough and in Wrong Places
