Patient Wristbands Can Fail Simple Reliability Tests

patient wristbandPatient wristbands are being used to ensure patients, tests, and their records are accurately identified. Barcodes are added for increased functionality and rapid processing of this information throughout the patient’s stay.

From admissions, laboratory, pharmacy, phlebotomy, through discharge processing and medical records that wristband is the key to positive identification and quality patient care.

A wristband must withstand the healthcare environment including soaps, foam, washes, hand sanitizer, patient-wear, exposure to blood, and moisture while remaining readable/scannable. With so many choices of wristbands for comfort, size, function, color, closures, and materials, the durability of the wristband and print must be considered for optimized performance.
