A hospital wristband is an armband that saves time and ensures accurate patient identification in a stressful healthcare setting. As a result, its use not only improves patient safety but also speeds up healthcare providers’ workflow.
The patient’s first and last names, hospital account number, medical record number, date of birth, age, and sex, attending physician, date of admission (or acceptance for procedure or service), and service/location will be included on the identification band. Wristbands with color-coding are frequently used as one component of a multi-component strategy for patient safety.
Red indicates allergy in many hospitals, yellow indicates increased risk of falling, and purple indicates DNR status3. Pink is also used by some to indicate a restricted extremity for blood draws or blood pressure measurements1.
Patients in hospitals are identified with wristbands. If a patient receives treatment or a procedure meant for someone else, or if treatment is delayed because it was given to the wrong patient, serious harm can result.
If the procedure is surgical or involves medication, this can be disastrous. There will be two bands used for identification. Before leaving the birthing room or operating room and before the newborn is separated from the mother, an identification band must be attached to each newborn’s ankle as soon as possible after birth.
