This paper outlines a large-scale audit for the enhancement of quality of care and staff and patient safety using passive RFID (Radio Frequency ID) wrist bands, which link to a patient's database, in order to reduce errors in patient care. It has been developed with a collaboration between the University Hospital, Birmingham, UK and Napier University, UK. The key feature of the work is the usage of passive RFID tags as an integral part of a low budget out-of-the box strategic patient information system which should be compatible with most hospital IT systems.
