Bar coded patient wristbands provide the necessary foundation for preventing errors by ensuring accurate patient information is always available at the point of care.

Automated medication administration, electronic health records, computerized physician order entry (CPOE), bar code point-of-care (BPOC) and other automated procedures for improving patient care all rely on accurate input that bar coding can provide.

  • How bar coded wristbands can satisfy The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) and other requirements
  • Applications for bar coded wristbands, including medication administration, specimen collection and management, blood administration, CPOE and other patient-care actions, plus uses for billing and administrative activities
  • Options for printing bar code wristbands in patient care settings
  • Considerations for choosing a bar code symbology
