In clinical work, wristband checking is one of the important ways of patient identification, and plays an important role in strict implementation of the checking system. Especially for severe patients, neonates and infants with surgery, coma, unconsciousness and disability, wristband should be worn as the basis for effective checking. And hospitalization number is the only sign that patients do not repeat!
In fact, medical wristband and other entertainment wristbands have certain differences. The main features are as follows: medical wristband can generally be waterproof, with one-time identification, and the greatest characteristics is the uniqueness. Medical wristband is anti-tear and non-destructive in principle. Medical wristbands can also be classified into handwritten type, printing type, RFID wristbands according to their working methods.
Main function of wristband
1 mark patient information
Doctors need to check the rooms. In the case of more patients, the information marked on the wristband can help recall the patient's illness condition assist in guiding the next step of treatment. Nurses need "three checks and seven pairs" in the process of dispensing drugs and injections. Among them, patients' names are checked to prevent misuse of drugs. For some sleeping or comatose patients, nurses can know the patient's name directly through the wristband.
2 Storage of information
The wristband has something like an electronic message strip, which can be used by patients in the process of payment, inquiry results, etc. There are many large hospitals where all terminals have been connected to the Internet, and patients only need to rely on the information strip on the wristband to quickly query the test results, hospitalization expenses and so on.
3 as a patient identity marker
Very few Alzheimer's patients occasionally get lost in the hospital. Others can use wristbands to find the patient's hospital bed number.
Classification of wristbands
First, wristband can be divided into adult medical wristband, child medical wristband and infant medical wristband according to the users.
1 Adult wristband
Suitable for adult wrist wear.
2 Marking patient information
The length of wristband is shorter than that of adult wristband, which is suitable for children to wear.
3 Infant wristband
The baby wristband is shorter in length, softer and milder in material, and suitable for infants to wear.
Second, according to the use form, it can be divided into handwritten medical wristband, printed medical wristband and RFID medical wristband.
1 Handwritten wristband
As the name implies, the wristband content is handwritten. This kind of wristband is convenient for people to fill in the content they want at will, and the efficiency is low.
2 Printing wristband
Printing medical wristband can be divided into thermal printing type and carbon belt printing type.
Printing is more convenient than handwriting. Especially in this efficiency-oriented era, patient information can be read only by scanning barcode, which reduces operation time and increases readability.
3 Medical RFID wristbands
The technology of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) makes it possible to place a chip inside the RFID wristbands, which is similar to our bank card or bus card. They can read patient information through a simple scan without revealing it on the wristband surface. It can also encrypt the wristband information and fully guarantee the patient's privacy. It can also be read from a long distance, and can complete the work without touching the patient. But obviously the cost of this wristband is much higher.
