Application of Medical Wristband RFID Tags in Hospital Wards

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification technology that uses wireless radio frequency communication for contactless two-way data communication. It utilizes the wireless radio frequency to read and write recording media (electronic tags or RFID cards) in order to achieve the goal of identification and data exchange. RFID is considered as one of the most promising information technologies in the 21st century.

Understanding medical wristband RFID tags

In clinical nursing work, verifying patient identity is crucial for accurate nursing work, especially for critically ill patients, surgical patients, unconscious or confused patients, patients with no voluntary ability, newborns, etc. Using patient identification medical wristband RFID tags to strengthen patient safety management and avoid medical risks has become a recognized method in hospitals. The material of medical wristband RFID tags is a disposable item that is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, with a smooth surface, soft texture, waterproof, easy to use, and has a clear information interface. The wristband has irreversible disposable adjustable buckles at both ends and is low cost.

Application of medical wristband RFID tags in the ward

When a patient is admitted to the hospital, the receiving nurse will print a patient wristband that records the patient's hospital department, bed number, name, gender, age, hospitalization number, diagnosis, allergic drugs, etc. The patient wristband is an important part of the complete patient identification system that runs through the entire process from admission to discharge, until it is cut off by the on-duty nurse when the patient is discharged for unified disposal.

During hospitalization, nurses check the identification band on each patient's wrist when administering medication or giving intravenous therapy to confirm that their identities match with the corresponding treatment measures. When the inspection department takes specimens, the staff no longer needs to register manually. By using the nursing station information, they can immediately obtain all the information about the sample, making the entire process from sample collection to processing fast and accurate, minimizing the occurrence of human errors.

For critically ill patients who are unconscious, confused, or have no voluntary ability, medical staff can also identify patients through wearing medical wristband RFID tags and implement corresponding treatment measures in the first time. Medical wristband RFID tags provide advanced and reliable auxiliary tools for standardized medical management, effectively preventing medical accidents caused by misidentification of patients, and maximizing management efficiency.
