Using the right labels, wristbands, tags and printing supplies is just the first step to reliable and accurate barcode scanning and printing in the hospital. To be functional, barcode and RFID labels need to be legible, scannable and able to stay attached to the item. Although the quality of the printer and scanner can impact the functionality of the label, compliant readability usually begins with the characteristics of the label or tag itself. It pays to take the time to consult with experts such as the specialists at ATPL for help in choosing the right product for each situation.
Make sure labels can withstand exposure to the elements in each area of the hospital.
There are several important considerations in choosing barcode & labeling supplies:-
Temperature, humidity and light of the working environment
Size and shape of items
Contact with chemicals and disinfectants
Exposure to imaging such as MRIs and x-ray
Oily, greasy or dirty surfaces
