Healthcare labels and wristbands come in a variety of materials, colors, adhesives, and sizes to support all types of common healthcare applications.

Healthcare Labels and Wristbands For Accurate Data Collection

Healthcare labels and wristbands have many unique requirements and can face a variety of environmental challenges. Accurate data collection relies on labels and wristbands to adapt to adverse conditions and patient comfort.

To ensure successful printing and reading of healthcare labels, it is important to work with a knowledgeable expert who can help you find the right printing supplies for your application.

Labels and Wristbands For Common Healthcare Applications

The versatile range of healthcare applications requires label types with unique specifications such as different label materials, sizes, colors, adhesive types, and designs.

  • Positive Patient ID – wristbands are designed for both patient comfort and usability. This enables clinicians to obtain an array of patient data from a single scan.
  • Specimen Tracking – The right label type is critical for proper specimen tracking. Subsequently, these labels must accommodate small test tubes and vials, as well as different types of storage and environments.
  • Blood Bag & IV Labels – Blood bag labels must be able to house large, high-quality barcodes for accurate and quick data collection.
  • Cryogenic & Cold Storage – Cold storage and cryogenics require durable polyolefin labels that can withstand extreme conditions.
  • Autoclaving – Sterilization is required for many pieces of equipment. Simultaneously, labels on these items must be able to retain their adhesion and quality through high heat, pressure, and moisture.

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.
