How CenTrak’s Cost-Effective Infant Abduction Protection Works
CenTrak newbaby leverages easy-to-use software applications that enable clinical staff to spend less time managing an infant security system and more time focusing on what matters most: caring for their most vulnerable patients.
The system has three main components:
Tags — Each infant is protected by wearing a small, comfortable, and unobtrusive tag that actively communicates with the system and gives staff bed- and bassinet-level location visibility. CenTrak’s solution offers a variety of tags including umbilical attachment and skin-sensing ankle-band tags.
Workstations — Workstations display floorplans of the facility, showing patient locations within monitored areas and protected exits.
Infrastructure — The system easily integrates with elevator control systems, door locking systems and security cameras.
Immediately set off an alarm — If an unauthorized attempt to remove the tag or leave a monitored area occurs, the CenTrak system will immediately sound the alarm. The sooner the breach is detected, the sooner the baby can be reunited with his or her mother. Thanks to its quick response, CenTrak’s newbaby solution allows hospitals to protect infants from abduction attempts.
Capture video image — CenTrak’s hospital infant security solution also integrates with video surveillance. In the event of a breach, the hospital’s cameras will activate, capturing critical information.
Activate door locks and even hold selected elevators — The system integrates easily with other security and access control systems the facility may already have in place, such as card access, video surveillance, public address systems and pagers. More than just a passive player, CenTrak’s system can trigger door locks and even hold selected elevators. Should a breach occur, CenTrak can help ensure the baby isn’t taken off the floor.
