Barcode scanning at the patient bedside is crucial in preventing deadly errors in medication administration and specimen collection as part of an overall positive patient identification (PPID) solution. 

But the last thing a nurse or lab technician needs is another bulky device to carry around.

That’s what makes the Zebra CS4070-HC barcode scanner so appealing. At a mere 3 ounces, it’s light enough to easily tuck into a pocket or hang from a lanyard. But don’t let its compact size fool you—this is an enterprise-class barcode scanner that can deliver reliable performance for up to 12 hours on a single charge.

And it’s designed specifically for the healthcare environment with disinfectant-ready plastic, an IP52 sealant rating and the ability to withstand multiple five-foot drops onto a concrete floor.

Our newest video illustrates how the CS4070-HC can deliver compact performance wherever barcode scanning is required.
