Patient safety starts at the wrist
Positive patient identification is the most critical component of improving patient safety; once an ID solution is in place, it is simpler to accurately track and manage other components such as specimens, medications, and materials to enhance patient safety and process efficiency in a multitude of applications across the enterprise. Identification begins in admissions.
With Zebra’s HC100 Patient I.D. Solution, admissions staff can produce on-demand barcoded, antimicrobial-coated, long-lasting wristbands so patients can be accurately identified throughout their hospital stay. The cornerstone of patient safety, Zebra wristband print solutions enable immediate access to critical patient information at the bedside and across all hospital departments.
To dramatically reduce errors, bring barcoding to the point of care. Simply have caregivers scan Zebra-printed barcodes on their own ID badge, the patient’s wristband and the medication before administration…the blood bag before transfusion…or the food tray before delivery. And to ensure specimens are associated with the right patient, clinicians can immediately label blood or specimen draws at the bedside with a mobile printer, such as the Zebra QLn220. Using barcoding for identification and verification at the bedside not only reduces errors, but improves process efficiency and cost effectiveness.
