STANLEY Healthcare Selected By Saudi Arabia Ministry Of Health To Provide Hugs® Infant Protection Solution On Wi-Fi Across 156 Hospitals

Stock quotes in this article: SWK

STANLEY Healthcare, a market leading provider of safety, security and operational efficiency solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that Ministry of Health (MoH) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has selected STANLEY Healthcare’s Hugs® Infant Protection Solution on Wi-Fi for use in 156 of its Ministry of Health hospitals.

This wide-scale deployment will help protect more than 350,000 newborn infants throughout Saudi Arabia from abduction and mother/baby mismatches every year, and is the second significant contract for infant protection awarded by the MoH to STANLEY Healthcare and its Authorized Partner in Saudi Arabia, Inma Trading. In 2011, the previous generation of the Hugs solution was selected for 16 of the largest birthing hospitals in the kingdom.

The new generation of the Hugs Infant Protection Solution leverages STANLEY Healthcare’s advanced AeroScout® Wi-Fi Real Time Location System (RTLS) platform, coupled with a small Hugs tag attached to the ankle of a newborn. In the event the Hugs tag is cut or removed from the infant without authorization, or the infant is removed from a designated area, the system generates an automatic alert for caregivers and security staff and locks down the designated area. Additionally, the sophisticated Wi-Fi technology enables hospitals to provide facility-wide infant protection as well as real-time monitoring throughout multiple buildings and sites, all with a single enterprise deployment.

In addition to this hospital-wide infant protection, the STANLEY Healthcare solution offers a range of additional patient safety and operational awareness features for the Obstetrics Department, including automatic temperature monitoring of breast milk refrigeration units, blanket warmers and pharmaceutical cabinets; asset tracking of breast pumps, wheelchairs and other key assets; staff assist to enable staff to call for help for patients or themselves; and hand hygiene compliance monitoring to improve infection prevention through automated around-the-clock monitoring of hand hygiene events.
