LaserBand Color-Code Wristbands and Special Precaution Products Comply with Statewide Standards
LOUIS -- LaserBand LLC (LASERBAND), the leading global manufacturer of patient wristbands, recently helped several hospitals implement local, regional, and statewide color-code standards by creating environmentally-friendly products that assist in eliminating the confusion that may lead to medication errors, misidentification, and death.
LaserBand has worked with statewide patient safety groups, including the Missouri Center for Patient Safety, the Ohio Patient Safety Institute, and the New Hampshire Foundation for Healthy Communities, to offer color-code wristbands for hospitals and other health care organizations denoting special patient conditions of DNR, allergy, fall risk, latex allergy, and limb alert: the LaserBand[R] Spot Alerts.
Many hospitals with color-code standards are selecting LaserBand Spot Alerts because they correspond with green initiatives, can be used with all wristband types, and can be applied directly next to main patient information (name, doctor, medical record number, account number, barcode, etc.
