Four Anesthesia and Surgery Labels That Support Patient Care
Surgery that requires anesthesia is one of the most complicated medical procedures that hospitals and outpatient surgery centers perform. That is why the organizations use anesthesia and surgery labels that communicate important information about the medical procedure and the patient. If your organization needs a new anesthesia and surgery labels supplier, choosing Shamrock Labels gives you the option of using the following types of labels, all of which can be custom designed to accommodate unique needs in your surgery environment.
- IV Tubing Control Labels
- IV Tubing Change Labels
- IV Auxiliary Labels
- Same Day Surgery Wristbands
- Communication Labels
After you know what type of anesthesia and surgery labels you need, the question becomes: What specific characteristics should the labels feature? The answer depends on your organization’s labeling requirements. However, our experience in supplying labels has taught us that there are three features that most care providers need in anesthesia and surgery labels.
- Sterile State
Surgeries are often performed in sterile environments to help prevent the patient’s incisions from becoming infected during the procedure and shortly thereafter. If your organization performs surgeries in a sterile environment, using sterile anesthesia and surgery labels will help keep the area highly sterilized. Our sterile labels come in packaging that helps preserve their sterility.
- Water Resistant
Unless anesthesia and surgery labels are resistant to water, moisture could cause them to fall apart and make the crucial information they contain unreadable. Moisture can come from the IV bag itself, from surgical gloves that are slightly wet after rinsing, and from high moisture in the surgery environment, to name just a few. Moisture resistant labels help support patient care.
- Color Coding
Color coded labels make it easy for surgery staff to process information the labels contain. For example, If yellow labels are used to indicate outpatient surgery patients and green labels are used for inpatient surgery recipients, physicians and nurses automatically know whether they should treat patients using their organization’s outpatient protocols or inpatient protocols.
- Bulk Availability
The opportunity to buy labels in bulk isn’t a characteristic of labels themselves, but it deserves to be mentioned considering that many healthcare organizations prefer to purchase labels in bulk to save money and ensure that labels are always available for immediate use. Whether you prefer to buy hundreds of labels at a time or thousands, we’ll accommodate your bulk order.
