New Barcode Wristband Provides Positive Patient ID for Emergency Room and Short Stay Patients
San Fernando, CA (March 16, 2006) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a leader in automatic wristband identification, introduces Securline® Short Stay LabelBand® for emergency room and short stay patients. Short Stay LabelBand is a new addition to PDC’s barcode hospital band product line, Sentry® Bar Code LabelBand.
Positive patient identification is the first step to improving overall patient safety. Hospitals use PDC Auto ID solutions, including bar code wristbands, to obtain positive patient ID and thereby help prevent medical errors caused by patient and/or specimen misidentification.
As part of a complete all-in-one system, LabelBand and Short Stay LabelBand securely seal paper labels inside a clear, adhesive shield. LabelBand provides easy and accurate bar code scanning and protection from water, solvents, and other abrasives. Both are quality, affordable solutions for hospitals looking to implement wristbands that provide results instantly.
“LabelBand is a true hospital wristband that should be used in all hospitals looking to cut costs and improve patient safety,” said Pamela Barker, Director of Admissions at Anderson Hospital (Maryville, IL). Anderson Hospital implemented LabelBand barcode wristbands throughout the entire hospital.
Short Stay LabelBand features include:
- Clear adhesive shield provides optimal protection from solvents for accurate bar code scanning.
- Tough Tyvek® construction is water resistant, durable, and non-abrasive to sensitive skin.
- Non-transferable, tamper-evident adhesive closure.
- Supports text, linear & 2D bar codes, photos and graphics.
- Large label area accommodates both laser and thermal labels.
- Clear shield with tamper-evident slits for added patient safety and security.
