RFID tags help hospitals track emergency drugs
from The Baltimore Sun
An average of twice a day, a patient at the University of Maryland Medical Center has a heart attack, dangerous allergic reaction or other emergency that requires supplies from a crash cart. The carts are the wheeled emergency stations that contain equipment including trays of life-saving drugs. And at Maryland, the trays are now also filled with radio-frequency identification tags that ensure all the medications are there and have not expired.
