Hugs® Infant Protection Will Soon Be Obsolete: What That Means For You

Posted by Accutech on June 6, 2023 4:12 pm

STANLEY Healthcare (now Securitas Healthcare) has announced that it will discontinue manufacturing and supporting the Hugs® LonWorks Infant Protection System in 2024. The two key dates are:

  • January 1, 2024
    • Orders will stop for Hugs® tags.
  • August 1, 2024
    • No new orders for Hugs® LonWorks will be available.
    • Healthcare facilities will not be able to receive service or support for these products.

For those in need of updating their infant protection systems, now is the perfect time to ensure the safety of your young patients is maintained. Here are several features to look for when choosing an infant protection system:

  1. Real-time alerts
    Ensuring your baby's safety is essential, and with a reliable infant protection system you can be sure that any concern will be addressed quickly. Real-time alerts are an integral part of the Cuddles Pulse infant protection system. And, when the tag is not in an alarm state, it sends out a signal every 1.5 seconds to check in. If seven signals are missed in a row, your staff will be notified and the floor can be locked down in just 15 seconds. That's up to 90 seconds earlier than the competition. This proactive stance towards your baby's well-being provides unparalleled protection that conventional methods cannot match up to, allowing you to both ensure and guarantee safety for your little one wherever they go.
  2. Comfortable bands
    Comfort is key. As hospital administrators, you want the little ones at your facility to not only be safe and secure, but also comfortable. That's why Cuddles Pulse has designed an innovative solution that includes a soft, stretchable band on the infant’s ankle, allowing the tag to never touch the baby's sensitive skin. Our tags also self-adjust to weight loss that happens postpartum. Other tags have to be adjusted multiple times and can cause an increased chance of false alarms. This not only keeps the baby safe from harm but also helps to reduce any discomfort they may experience while wearing the protection system.
  3. Software that works even when your network doesn’t
    With any technology, power outrages and network failures can happen. Make sure your infant protection system has the capabilities to reduce downtime. Accutech's Cuddles Pulse is an independent system using a combination of wired and wireless technologies to stay operational even when your network goes down. Hospital staff can process admissions and discharges without any external software and without worrying about dead spots or latency in generating alarms. This technology allows you to rest assured knowing the infants at your hospital are protected and accounted for at all times.
  4. Integration with your current systems
    The ultimate goal of your healthcare facility is to create a unique and seamless network that can provide comprehensive monitoring, alerts, and security to run smoothly. Make sure your infant protection system fits perfectly with your existing technology. The Cuddles Pulse system is designed to easily integrate with wired and wireless nurse call systems, paging, access control, and CCTV systems, providing a complete solution for any infant protection setup.
  5. Ongoing support
    Any efficient infant protection system needs to be backed by consistent and reliable customer support. All Accutech systems, including Cuddles Pulse, come with free 24/7/365 phone and remote desktop support, ensuring that you have access to expert assistance whenever you need it.
