Infant Abduction Prevention Technology

Choose an amount to donate


When it comes to patient safety at Grand River Kids, an automated infant protection solution is also on our wish list this holiday season. This technology will provide facility-wide safety for families and offer them peace of mind by protecting our youngest, most vulnerable patients using a real-time location system. 

As a part of this system, a small, comfortable and discreet electronic sensor is placed around the baby’s ankle to monitor their location within the hospital. These sensors actively communicate with an integrated computerized system, generating instant alerts at our team’s workstation if the device is removed, tampered with or stops communicating. In the childbirth program, a similar lightweight electronic sensor is also fitted for each new parent after they give birth so staff can ensure proper parent-baby matching. 

The system’s clinical-grade location capabilities will also make our hospital safer than ever before. This advanced technology enables staff to identify an infant’s location with accuracy, allowing them to determine the exact bay, hallway, stairwell or patient room they are in and providing additional protection for patients, parents and the facility.
