In the simplest of terms, hospital wristbands contain a patient’s most vital information pertinent to the care they’ll receive from the attending medical personnel (doctor, surgeon, nurse, etc.). Hospital Wristband Applications Hospital wristbands aren’t just used for patient identification, nor are they only intended for wrists. Wristbands prove reliable, cost-effective solutions that can be implemented as tags and labels to communicate vital information in a medical setting. Wristbands don’t have to feature specific customer information in order to be effective. We see our solid-colored wristbands used prevalently in patient screening, displaying test results, discerning levels of condition severity, and more. Hospital wristbands are often also used to define variables you wish to classify (i.e. denote the day of the week a customer came to get tested, show that a surface has been disinfected, etc.). A hospital wristband’s information can help reduce errors, simplify processes, and improve safety across the board. Two Types of Hospital Wristband Materials Tyvek Tyvek hospital wristbands are the preferred solution for short-term care. These bands provide a cost-effective solution for identifying important information in a healthcare environment. We recommend patients use these for up to 48 hours. Plastic Plastic wristbands are the preferred option for extended use. These wristbands can be used by patients for up to seven days, or as an identifier much longer. We use high-quality plastic for greater durability for extended use. Get Started If you have questions about any of our products, be sure to get in touch.
