Verichip Saving Lives

[Media Source*]

(Cross Posted on Blogger News)

VeriChip Corp. has said its infant protection system prevented a baby from being abducted from Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, N.C.

The subsidiary of Delray Beach-based Applied Digital said its "Hugs" radio frequency identification system went into alarm mode, July 15, when someone removed the infant from the hospital's seventh-floor nursery.

Apparently the baby snatcher did not realize that this baby was being protected by "an invisible guardian." After the alarm was tripped off, the Hospital went into "code pink" which alerted security who were able to thwart the abduction and return the child back into the hands of maternity ward staff. Although deemed by some as the mark of the beast, Verichip has proven itself to be an effective measure security wise, at least in this scenario.

The company's infant protection systems are also designed to prevent accidental infant mismatching. It cited Journal of Healthcare Protection Management data showing mismatching occurs about 20,000 times a year.

VeriChip said about 900 U.S. hospitals have installed its infant protection systems.

Verichip seems to be courting hospitals in order to remove any stigma of being known as the "big brother device." This is probably a wise move as many in America are naturally suspicious of any monitoring devices, and placing the companies image alongside of defending new borns helps curb the negative image received from conspiracy groups.

Verichip's baby protection system, known as the HALO Infant Protection System, has already displayed it's effectiveness and unlike the traditional chip, is not implanted underneath the skin. This enables parents to leave the hospital with the right child and not worry about "big brother" watching their child from afar.

FYI - the people "abducting" the infant were the child's parents!
