  • Short Summary

    New methods for identifying new born babies.

  • Description

    "This is a tale of Hospital babies, where they avoid those possible "mixed identity" errors - " C/U of two nurses, one holds a tiny baby. The other nurse sticks a label to its back. C/U of a necklace which has lots of white beads.

    Lettered beads in the centre of the necklace read: "BABY BLACK" - how cute! C/U of the nurses as one puts the necklace on the baby - the baby cries. C/U of the baby with its necklace on. I think this is a bit dangerous! Wouldn't happen these days!

    "In addition to the bracelet (sic) and label, a foot imprint as well! (This is a howling success)" Baby lays on a table and a roller loaded with black ink is rolled across one of its feet. C/U of the baby crying. The nurse presses a piece of paper against the baby's foot. "Everybody's Darlings!" Panning shot of two rows of babies in cribs all lined up. Nurses attend to them.
