The Securline® BarCode Blood Band uses serialized bar code ID and alpha-numeric codes to accurately match the right patient to the right blood. This improves patient safety by reducing identification related human errors that can occur during the blood transfusion process. The product's 12 matching bar code labels (four on the wristband and eight on the detachable tail that is applied to blood tubes) can be applied to additional draw tubes, patient chart, transfusion requisition, and as a secondary label on blood bags. A clear, adhesive shield on the wristband's information area protects the patient ID labels and barcode from moisture or solvents for accurate barcode scanning. Soft, latex-free material maximizes patient comfort and safety yet is also durable and strong.
In contrast to the other leading bar coded blood wristband on the market, the Securline® Bar Code Blood Band features an easy-to-use snap style closure and secure bar code labels, saving hospital staff valuable time and unnecessary frustration. Mary Ann Sharpe, Blood Bank Manager at Research Medical Center which belongs to HCA Midwest Health System, stated, "Securline® Bar Code Blood Bands are easy to apply because the bands snap closed just like our admission wristbands. The other bar code blood bands we were using before were complicated and our staff struggled with putting the bands on patients. Plus, the bar code labels on the Securline® product are very secure and don't peel off accidentally like we experienced with the other band."
"Bar coding continues to bring improvements in patient safety as hospitals adapt the technology to reduce human errors," said Kim Canchola, Product Manager for Precision Dynamics. "The added bonus is the increase in productivity as hospitals use sheeted labels with barcodes instead of writing patient ID info by hand. The Securline® BarCode Blood Band combines the sophistication and functionality of barcoding for blood transfusions with the simplicity and comfort of a high quality, non-transferable identification wristband. The positive response we've received from our customers about their experience with this product is rewarding because we know we're helping solve their problems by doing what we do best -- delivering first-class identification solutions."
