The right wristband and label media can determine the success or failure of your patient ID system. With such important factors in mind, more healthcare organizations choose media from PDC Healthcare to provide accurate and reliable positive patient identification, superior imprint quality, maximum resistance to solvents, and seamless printing.

PDC Healthcare Media Features:

A Wide Selection of Wristband and Label Sizes to fit all shapes and sizes of patients, from the smallest newborn babies to the largest adults.

Scan Reliability to deliver consistently accurate scan rates for positive patient identification and tracking.

Compatibility with each unique application and designed to meet specific environmental requirements (NICU, laboratory, long-term care, etc.).

Durability to stand up to the test of time and maintain effectiveness throughout the patient’s full stay.

Comfort with smooth, soft materials that have contoured edges that are safe and comfortable against even the most delicate skin.

Safety and Security with multiple closure options and tamper-evident material that prevents the transfer of wristbands.

Workflow Efficiency to save time and streamline steps at point-of-care, providing convenience for caregivers so they can focus more time on caring for their patients.

Resistance to Common Fluids, including 70% Isopropyl alcohol, alkaline detergent, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, and Iodine.

Antimicrobial Coating to help protect wristbands from non-pathogenic, odor-causing bacteria, preventing degradation and discoloration, which can affect the legibility of patient information, the accuracy of bar code scanning, and the comfort and satisfaction of patients.

PDC Healthcare smart media used in the TrustSense Patient ID Printing Solution helps healthcare institutions optimize the safety of patients at critical points in the delivery of care to improve clinical outcomes and enhance the overall patient experience.

PDC Healthcare wristbands and labels also help organizations to maintain compliance with important patient safety regulations, including:

  • The Joint Commission Patient Safety Guidelines
