Infant & Pediatric Security

Setting the Scene

Protecting the Newest Bundles of Joy

Keeping newborns and children safe and ensuring a secure, welcoming environment for families is the most basic function of patient security and critical to maintaining your reputation as a reliable medical facility. RFT does just that by protecting your smallest patients, giving families peace of mind and reducing the risk of abduction. We were first in the industry with an RFID infant security system, and it has protected countless infants for three decades. Developed by nurses for nurses, RFT’s solution is customizable to your hospital’s unique security needs, protecting infants and children without interfering with everyday workflow.

Effective Technology

There are two options for attaching transmitters to a an infant. The first is a post on the small, lightweight umbilical transmitter tag that attaches directly to a standard umbilical clamp. The second is a patented tag worn on an infant’s ankle; secured with soft, comfortable banding.

Immediately following delivery, a nurse activates the transmitter to enroll the infant and then applies the clamp to the umbilical cord stump or soft banding worn around the ankle. All of this happens seamlessly during the standard procedure for nurses clamping the umbilical cord and caring for the newborn child . The transmitter remains on the infant for the duration of the baby’s hospital stay.
