Solution Overview:

Infant Security in Hospitals

New born infant protectionEven though infant and patient security systems have been around for over a couple of decades, it’s reported that on average there is still an infant abduction from a U.S. hospital every month, with most going unreported due to possible reputational consequences. Additionally, nearly half of children with ASDs between the ages of four and 10 have tried to elope from their hospitals, meaning there is still a critical need for real-time monitoring and protection of your youngest patients.

TotGuard Pediatric protectionTotGuard™ Infant & Pediatric Security, an industry-leading application within our AllGuard™ Healthcare suite, is the only enterprise-class infant and pediatric protection solution on the market that provides real-time visibility and monitoring of multiple locations from a central server. It offers the highest level of  infant security – from its dedicated network infrastructure practically immune to interference and overload, to its redundant tag/rules databases at doorways - backed by a feature-rich but simple-to-use application available on desktops, tablets, and mobile phones. It’s also the only system to offer four different infant tags and industry-leading Mother-Baby matching, not to mention small, light, comfortable tags for your young patients.

TotGuard’s reliability is unmatched, with tags that are designed to reduce and even eliminate nuisance alarms contributing to a quieter, more comfortable patient environment, and the greatest immunity to interference from electronic devices such as smartphones. It’s also been designed with standards compliance and certification in mind, meaning it easily integrates with complementary security and healthcare systems, and any devices based on the IEEE 802.15.4f standard.

The Widest Selection of Infant Tags in the Industry!

Dual-Tamper Sensing Tag

Patented dual-tamper sensing tag with soft, stretchable, waterproof, hypoallergenic band that’s the easiest to clean in the industry, and minimizes false alarms; weighs less than 6.5 grams with smooth, reusable design offering maximum security with minimum nuisance. Self-adjusting with weight loss or gain, and so requiring minimal maintenance

Cut-Band Tamper Sensing Tag (for infants & all patients)

Waterproof cut-band tamper detection, without any exposed metal contacts that could corrode or be damaged during cleaning; easy to apply and one size fits all, negating need for any measuring

NICU Infant Tags

This includes versions of both the Cut-Band Tamper Sensing Tag and the Dual-Tamper Sensing Tag, but with smaller bands and/or fabric.

Umbilical Tag

Smallest and lightest available, with innovative umbilical clamp mount; waterproof and comes in a choice of single-use, 3-month, or 12-month lifetimes

Mother Tag

Avoid any mix-ups between mothers and their babies by using GuardRFID's Mother Tag. The system will warn you if you happen to be handing over a newborn to the wrong mother. 

“Our nursing staff is very happy with the new NICU Tag. It has a nice soft band that is antimicrobial and, most importantly, is very adjustable so we can size it exactly for the baby. It has a clean, finished appears and is even cute with a little baby footprint on it.”
Casey Donnelly, Interim Nursing Manager of the NICU, Albany Medical Center

"I would absolutely recommend TotGuard. First, the product is very good. When you look at what it is that clinicians need to do and how they need to keep their patients safe, you need a product that is highly versatile, that doesn’t cause additional alarms, and is user friendly. And TotGuard is all those things. But secondly, I think GuardRFID’s customer service has been spectacular! "
