Polyester Wristbands by EasyID
Polyester Wristbands (our 20 & 21 Seriers)
Polyester ID Wristbands
GBS offer Hospitals a high-performing polyester latex-free wristband for quality patient care. They are a time-tested and proven performance band for positive patient identification. The secure sealed adhesive closure is also an added security bonus.
Polyester Identification bands are available as "Shielded" and "Non-Shielded" wristbands. The Shielded wrist bands are used with low cost paper labels while the Non-Shielded wrist bands are used with high durable and waterproof polyester labels.
Shielded Polyester Wristbands
Shielded Poly Bands
Our Shielded Wristbands completely seals a patient's identification label behind an impenetrable shield for the best protection against all kinds of liquids. A crystal clear acrylic cover and over-lay protects a patient label and locks in information, protecting your hospital or medical facility from tragic and expensive errors. Because patient information does not smear and stays readable, hospital staff and doctors and most bar code scanners will provide a positive patient identification.
Non-Shielded Polyester Wristbands
Non-Shielded Wristbands offers an alternative to shielded wristbands by allowing a polyester label to be placed on top of the durable poly wrist band. The labels are scannable by bar code scanners allowing for an effective and efficient way to get a computer confirmation of the patient's identity, preventing hospital medical errors. Hospitals can use any label. Choose either a special hospital custom labels or standard office labels. If waterproof wrist bands are a priority, polyester labels are highly recommended to ensure patient information is readable and scannable by bar code scanners.
Waterproof ID Wristbands
Polyester wrist bands are waterproof and more durable and secure than Tyvek wrist bands. They are stretch-resistant and strong, yet lightweight and flexible. They are ideal for multi-day use and/or rugged wear. They come in vibrant, solid colors for excellent visibility and identification. To provide 'Non-Shielded' Polyester wrist bands a waterproof solution, the bands can be used with waterproof polyester labels that are designed to repel water, resist scuffs, tears and smudges so labels remain easy to read.
Durable and Long Lasting Polyester Wristbands
Because patient information stays readable, hospitals can leave the medical identification bands on through a patient's stay, avoiding the nuisance of frequent replacement while saving the hospital money.
Best Alert Wristbands on the Market
The polyester wrist bands come in several standard colors. This allows hospitals to use standardized colors to color code patients and procedures. The American Hospital Association (AHA) is recommending all member hospitals to standardize colors of their alert wristbands. By using colored wristbands, a hospital will be better able to practice their own in-house standard color codes.
Different Size Polyester Wristband
Most size labels will fit on one of our shielded hospital ID wrist bands, which are now available in widths from 5/8 inch to 1 1/2 inches. Standard length of the hospital ID wrist bands is 10 inches, but we also have a 13 inch long version for ankles (or really big wrists) and 7 inch ones for kids in the pediatric department.
