“Radio frequency identification could seriously affect life-saving equipment leading to hazardous situations for hospitals, Dutch scientists have claimed.
A report in the Journal of the American Medical Association by Dutch academics and doctors found that even the most simple radio frequency identification device (RFID) such as a credit card could cause electromagnetic interference, which could prove to be fatal.”
While I do agree that electromagnetic interference can seriously mess things up in a medical setting, wouldn’t wireless networks pose more harm?
I’ll stop my personal opinionshere (because on this topic, there is no right or wrong answers as there are too many factors at play), however, do read the entire article here.
While you are at it, do read my (short) article on RFID in healthcare.
