Are you sure that the baby you are holding is yours? Well, that’s one of the hazards when giving birth in a hospital where so many women are giving birth all at one time and all their babies are placed in a single facility increasing the chances of a mix-up.
Hospitals use wristbands to identify new-born babies and other patients as well. Even with wristbands, there is still a percentage of danger of getting the babies all mixed up. After all, the identity badges are just printed strips of papers inserted inside a band.
However, the barcode wristbands & labels by Precision Dynamics Corporation provides a higher percentage of safety. The system of using barcode wristband was first developed by PDC in 1984. Today the barcode wristbands are used by most hospitals all over the world.
This home medical equipment is not only used to ensure for patient identity but also to collect patient data more efficiently. It is compliant with the JCAHO and HIPAA requirements for data privacy protection as well as a more accurate transfer of data.
The bar codes are clear and are easily scanned. The information is also easily printed with the use of laser printers or even through thermal transfer.
The next time you are giving birth or hospitalized, make sure your health facility is using these barcode wristbands.
