Each pack has an Adult Tag for the expectant mother and an infant tag, with a male and female portion.
We suggest the mother is tagged on admission, both portions of the child is filled in with mothers details, and signature of the mother or the attendant is obtained on the reverse of the infant’s Tag.
At birth, once the gender of the child is known, the appropriate portion of the tag is cut and used to tag the infant; the remaining portion is handed over back to the mother or to her attendant.
- Mixing up of babies deliberately or otherwise is a common suspicion
- Every hospital has a system of identification but the parents/attendants are not aware of.
