Labels & Printing Supplies

More than just a “Sticker”.

Use the right labels to ensure accuracy and patient safety!

Using the right labels, wristbands, tags and printing supplies is just the first step to reliable and accurate barcode scanning and printing in the hospital. To be functional, barcode and RFID labels need to be legible, scannable and able to stay attached to the item. Although the quality of the printer and scanner can impact the functionality of the label, compliant readability usually begins with the characteristics of the label or tag itself. It pays to take the time to consult with experts such as the specialists at RMS Omega for help in choosing the right product for each situation.

Make sure labels can withstand exposure to the elements in each area of the hospital.

There are several important considerations in choosing barcode & labeling supplies:

  • Temperature, humidity and light of the working environment
  • Size and shape of items
  • Contact with chemicals and disinfectants
  • Exposure to imaging such as MRIs and x-rays
  • Oily, greasy or dirty surfaces

Our team of specialists can work with you to review your operations, identify your needs and recommend the most appropriate labels, ribbons and wristbands, if required. We will ensure the media selected is durable and high quality, capable of supporting your printing technologies, whether the labels are paper or synthetic with a direct thermal or thermal transfer application. If you want customized labels, we can work with our partners to produce just the right size, adhesive, design and color.

Supplies Management

We know one of your concerns is running out of supplies. To make sure you always have the supply of labels, wristbands and ribbons you need, RMS Omega offers two options.  We can auto ship a predetermined amount of product regularly or we can ship ‘on demand’.
