The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patientís healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And thatís how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. Itís also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to ďImprove the accuracy of patient identification,Ē which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification ó including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commissionís National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
