RF Technologies(R) Installs Updated Version of its Safe Place(R) Solution for Infant Security at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital
Date:7/15/2010

BROOKFIELD, Wis., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Technologies®, a leading provider of radio frequency identification monitoring systems and healthcare security solutions, announces it has installed version 6.0 of its Safe Place® Infant and Pediatric Security Solution at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital located in Tracy, Cali. The hospital delivers approximately 775 babies a year.

The hospital has relied on RF Technologies infant security technology since 2002.  

Joanne Slayter, Manager of Maternal/Child Care Services at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital said, "We choose to stay with something that has been good for us all along. It is very reliable. When new technology is available, we like to incorporate it. That is why we decided to upgrade at this time. We especially like the touch screen capability. Safe Place is one of the many layers of infant protection we use in protecting our newborns."

The Safe Place system helps prevent abduction of infant patients by sounding an alarm and locking all area doors if the baby is moved without authorization. Staff can easily monitor the infants via computer software that alerts them to any attempt to tamper with infant transmitters.

"We're excited that Sutter Tracy has partnered with us to safeguard their infant patients," stated David Barden, National Sales Director for RF Technologies. "Our team remains committed to providing ongoing training and support."

To celebrate the completed installation, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on June 30, as well as a reception honoring donors from the Pillar Society, a group of generous donors affiliated with the Tracy Hospital Foundation, who made the purchase of Safe Place possible.

"The dedicated support and unwavering generosity of the Pillar Society made it possible for parents to benefit from an even higher level of trust and security," said Slayter.  "The generous donation allowed Sutter Tracy Community Hospital to keep pace with the medical advances important to the health and well-being of all our patients."  

Past notable Pillar Society donations include monitoring equipment for the hospital's intensive care unit, and a nuclear medicine camera for its imaging department.
