The moment an infant is born in a hospital, patient identity becomes a critical concern. From making sure the proper medications and treatments are administered to ensuring the right infant goes home with the right mother, there’s a definite need for positive patient identification (PPID) solutions. 

But it’s not as simple as taking an adult wristband and cinching it up really tightly.

Infant wristbands need to be specially designed for maximum comfort while still providing a secure fit and durable scanability.

Zebra’s LaserBand® line of laser wristbands, ID tags and accessories gives clinicians multiple options for ensuring positive ID of their newest patients.

The patented self-laminating seal protects the barcode from moisture and hand sanitizers, preserving patient data for longer usability.
