Positive Patient ID Starts with a Wristband.

Use a thermal wristband and print patient information and barcodes directly on the band.

Identifying patients with barcoded wristbands is the most fail safe means of assuring correct patient identification in healthcare settings. Barcoding solutions fulfill the principles of the ‘Five Rights’ of patient care – Right Patient, Right Medication, Right Dose, Right Time and Right Method of Administration – and prevent potentially fatal administrative errors.

Barcoded wristbands can be printed in two ways, laser or thermal. Learn more about the differences.

Using RFID wristbands – Don’t disturb the patient!

With RFID wristbands, nurses can quickly scan and identify patients without having to adjust or wake them. Wristbands are soft and comfortable, featuring adjustable adhesive closures to fit patients of all sizes. RFID readers can also be used to capture barcodes to verify patient medications, specimens, charts, and more.
