Infants tagged in Essex

12th November 2009

A new infant protection system has been introduced at the Fryatt Hospital in Harwich, Essex, to prevent children from being abducted.

Infants at the trust can now wear a Hugs tag attached to their ankle by a soft tamper-proof strap in a system supplied by Xmark. A computer console displays images of floor plans of the area which show tag locations with monitored areas and doors indicated and if the child is moved to a different zone or the strap tampered with an alarm sounds.
