Preventing patient identification errors is an essential factor in medical best practice. Although incidents are rare and usually detected in good time, such ‘wrong-patient events’ can result in mistreatment and have potentially serious consequences.
The solution? Personalised wristbands! Konica Minolta’s laser-printable wristbands mean errors such as treating the wrong patient or providing the wrong therapy are now completely outdated. Wristband printing is an efficient way of improving both your patient management and your operational performance.
With Konica Minolta laser printers, patient wristbands and chart labels can be printed on a single sheet, allowing information to be printed quicker and streamlining patient hospitalisation workflows.
Using a comprehensive test procedure and a representative selection of its printers, Konica Minolta can recommend to customers which type of Zebra LaserBand wristband would be most appropriate for their needs. As well as endorsing the quality and compatibility of the LaserBand patient wristbands by carrying out an extensive test report, Konica Minolta develops detailed recommendations regarding optimal printer settings, ensuring the best-possible results and high levels of reliability in a clinical context.
Variable data as patient name, date of birth, case number etc. is controlled and printed directly from the hospitals information system (HIS).A new printing form is created by the IT specialist of the hospital; which is as simple as the maintenance or adaption of an existing form, e.g. to print patients check list labels. Like this a direct print of patient data from the system onto the wristband is possible, including conversion into barcode or QR code.From experience, the integration of patient wristbands is not much time consuming.
Developed specifically for the healthcare industry, the LaserBand patient wristband is a sophisticated, robust and easy-to-use solution featuring integrated protective foil to protect the applied laser print perfectly. Combined with built-in self-adhesive labels, this premium tape helps simplify and speed up patient hospitalisation workflows, letting employees print label sheets and patient wristbands in a single operation. The LaserBand is available in ‘sheetlet’ (envelope-size) format, or a popular A4 format combining integrated adhesive labels with versions for adults, children and babies. The premium patient wristband is provided by Diagramm Halbach Germany. This Zebra Supplies Specialist Partner manufactures individually die-cut labels within A4 wristband sheets, as well as providing plain A4 and sheetlet LaserBand wristbands.
Konica Minolta’s wristband printing options let healthcare facilities provide patients with better care. Any medical personnel and physicians in attendance can easily identify the patient and prescribe the correct treatment according to the patient’s chart and lab tests, while caregivers can simply scan the barcode on the wristband to access the patient’s information. LaserBand wristbands can be printed in A4 format or as a sheetlet, making it a more cost-effective solution. A single A4 sheet contains one wristband with 20 chart labels. These are printed simultaneously, simplifying patients’ ID processes.
