Hospital Labels for Positive Patient Identification
Patient Identification Labels
Labeling may seem like a small and insignificant part of the day to day operations within a basic hospital environment. But, incorrect labeling can lead to improper use of medications while no labeling can lead to major hospital errors that greatly effect patient safety.
According to a report by the Institute of Medicine, medical errors are the eight leading cause of death in patients in the United States. Improper labeling has caused many of these deaths due to overdoses, unnecessary surgeries and incorrect drugs. EasyID is reaching out to hospitals and medical facilities to help them improve Positive Patient ID (PPID) labeling by developing and customizing patient identification systems, labels, forms, and wristbands that will work together to improve workflow and patient safety. Building a reliable and Easy Patient Identification Label System requires the right tools that will work with large and small hospital and their medical ADT systems. EasyID is making it possible for hospitals to easily implement a dependable Identification system no matter where they are in the evolution of their patient information system.
Labels can also be used as asset tags with printed barcodes on them. These can then be affixed to supplies and instruments in the hospital or medical clinic to provide positive identification and tracking. This can help in the process of checking hospital inventory supply.

Quality Label Printing Can Benefit Hospitals and Medical Facilities
Hospitals are continuously under pressure to save time and money throughout operations without sacrificing accuracy or quality. We are here to help hospitals think about their daily operations and explain how applying certain label systems and products can save them time and money, while keeping patients safe.
EasyID offer hospitals a high-performing paper, polyester and thermal patient ID labels for quality patient care. They are a time-tested and proven performance for positive patient identification (PPID). The secure sealed adhesive is also an added security bonus.
Label Sheets or Single Printable Labels
During patient administration, single sheet printing provides hospitals with an easy one-step label and wristband solution that can save time and money. Paper Label Sheets and Bands on a Sheet (BOAS) are the most widely used labels because of their low cost and ability to print using a variety of printers, systems and materials. However, what happens when information changes, labels are damaged, rolls get lost or mixed up and the wrong labels are applied? And you need a label now? Dedicated thermal printers can help hospitals print labels on-demand where and when you need them. Reprints and replacement of label stocks and ribbons can also be costly. Not using the right labels, printers or patient systems can lead hospitals to even more serious cost consequences.
Labels and their Printers
Hospital and Laboratory Labels
Laser printers are the best for printing documents, forms, and a large variety of sheet-fed hospital labels. However, thermal printers could be a better choice for your hospital if you need to print patient labels one at a time.
Printing paper labels and polyester labels should be handled quickly and safely without disrupting other hospital procedures. Hospital staff should know how to use adjustable printer settings, allowing them to control the quality of a crisp-clean print for reliable barcode scanning. With a wider choice of label materials, sizes, shapes, shields, and adhesives, your hospital labels can be easily suited to your particular needs, your printer's applications, and hospital system and regulations. Here at EasyID we offer Hospitals and Medical Facilities several solutions to label printing that will improve time, quality and cost.
How many label printers are needed in a hospital?
Patient Administration and main nursing stations are often the most common location where laser printers can be found. Multiple hospital documents, paper and poly labels, and wristbands can be printed in a low-cost, one-step process. But, compact durable thermal printers strategically placed throughout the hosptial (based on usage, purpose, label requirements and printing volume) can lead to several improvements for a hospital. Thermal labels and printers are designed for printing and applying at the point of care. Thermal labels and printers can also withstand hospital and laboratories extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals, and changing conditions without smearing, fading, or falling off. The right printer and label will help ensure continuous operation and protect patients. While dedicated printers with specific labels offer great solutions to hospitals that are looking to increase efficiency. EasyID's hospital labeling and patient identification solutions are easy to use, scan and are easily compatible with Zebra, LaserBand, Standard Register, and St. John/PDC products. We make any solution Easy!
