The safety of the patients in your care has the highest priority. Healthcare technology extends the ability of your staff to monitor and delivery quality care.
An effective wristbanding solution is the beginning of protecting your patients A barcoded wristband contains all of the information your staff needs to ensure that the right medications and care are delivered, in the right doses and the right time. A quick scan confirms the accuracy, and the information is instantly transmitted to the electronic medical record (EMR) so that other caregivers share the information in real-time—not waiting for the data to be manually entered, which opens a large door to human error.
Wristband printing encompasses a broad spectrum of solutions. You can choose from thermal and laser printing wristbands. Some wristbands will require assembly, which requires staff time. You also need to consider the comfort, safety, and durability of the wristband itself. In order to be effective, the wristband must remain scannable, even when subjected to the constant cleaning and the daily wear.
Bedside specimen collection becomes safer and more effective when the patient is wearing a barcoded wristband that is easily readable with a mobile barcode scanner. Labeling the specimen at the point of care ensures that the sample follows a traceable path to the lab and beyond.
