Correct patient identification is the foundation of patient safety, and it is critical for quality care.

Attaching a Typenex® Medical AdminBand™ during your admissions process means caregivers have a quick and easy way to check patients’ identification throughout the duration of their hospital stay.

Information about a Typenex® Medical AdminBand

Every hospital creates their own method for processing admissions, and most include some sort of identification band that includes patient information, such as their:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Medical record number
  • Hospital account number
  • Physician’s name

Typenex Medical AdminBands have plenty of space for laser printed labels. Additionally, our AdminBand has a plastic shield that protects the information from water and other fluids during normal wear and tear. Your caregivers will spend less time replacing damaged bands and more time caring for patients.

Features of a Typenex® Medical AdminBand™

Your protocols are how you keep patients safe, but they only work when they are implemented correctly. The simpler the steps, the greater your success. To that end, our AdminBand feature:

  • A large information area to accommodate a pre-printed patient label
  • Durable bands designed to last throughout most hospital stays
  • Convenient snap closures
  • Plastic shields to safeguard patient information

Additionally, our admissions bands are compatible with our new Typenex Medical R3™ reattachment system. Should you need to expand an AdminBand, simply attach an R3 Band to the AdminBand and snap close.

The Typenex Medical AdminBand is simple to use, and it supports your established admission protocols. When it is time to use our AdminBand, your caregivers should:

  4. Peel the liner from the protective shield.
  5. Cover the patient label with the protective shield.
