Many hospitals need a solution for printing bedside Lab labels as a part of positive patient identification. Preprinted labels do not adhere to patient verification protocols and handwritten labels are often illegible or even inaccurate.
With the ISG™ Bedside Lab Label solution, the process is automated. A 2D barcode is added to the patient wristband. The barcode includes all of the data fields that are on the wristband. It also includes a randomly generated blood band number. This eliminates the need for a separate blood band.
Printing the specimen collection label at the bedside is easy! You use the ISG™ 300 portable Bluetooth battery powered printer with barcode scanner.
- The clinician scans the 2D barcode on the patient wristband.
- The barcode on the employee ID card is scanned.
- A quantity label count label affixed to the printer is scanned.
- A label (or labels) is then printed that includes the patient name, medical record number, blood band number, clinical ID number, and date & time.
