cause they enable healthcare providers to verify a correct match between the patient and medical treatment provided. Many wristbands in use at hospitals today, however, are made of materials that can scratch or irritate an infant's delicate skin," added Swanson. "Developed for optimal comfort and ease of use, our new wristbands facilitate patient safety efforts in the NICU, labor and delivery, and pediatric departments - including bar code scanning for bedside medication administration and breast milk verification - without the risk of damaging an infant's sensitive skin."
The new infant bands are designed to stay on the patient's wrist for the duration of the hospital stay and are available with both adhesive tab and clip closures. Both wristbands will resist alcohol, water, foams, soaps and blood, and feature a patent-pending antimicrobial coating that protects the bands from MRSA Types II, III and IV, S. aureus, P. aeruginosa and E. coli, the leading causes of hospital infections in the United States.
Zebra's thermal bar code print solutions support a variety of patient-safety applications at hospitals worldwide, including patient identification, medication administration, specimen collection and blood transfusion verification.
