Non Residue Labels Take the Work Out of Sharing Medical Information
Whether you sell products to consumers or work in the medical industry, one frustrating aspect of labels is the sticky residue they leave behind! A good example is dealing with residue when attempting to remove the attached tag on a purchased product. This is a problem in every industry; however, in the field of medicine left over residue or materials are a potential risk and create problems. After a permanent label has been applied to the container, it is extremely difficult to remove. This makes it hard to apply the right patient or medical instructions to a container after an initial application.
Non residue labels provide a simple option for placement on multiple surfaces in any location as needed. For example, you need to place warnings regarding a specific medication on the patient’s chart. Upon doing so, you realize that the wrong label has been placed on the chart and now must be removed. If it is not a non residue label, then removing it will be a hassle and might call for the re-creation of a patient chart page. This is a costly situation due to the following reasons:
- It cannot be reused and must be thrown away.
- The patient chart page it was placed on is ruined.
- Time must be spent on re-creating information.
- There is an Increased risk of inaccurate patient information.
In scenarios where the tag is placed on equipment, time must also be spent on removing the residue. Non residue labels alleviate these problems by providing an alternative option that leaves no sticky mess behind. While they may not be applicable for every need in your facility or pharmacy, non residue labels have several usage benefits including reduced cleanup over alternative options.
Why Use Removable, Non Residue Labels?
One of the biggest reasons to use non residue labels is the ability to peel the tag off without any cleanup. This is helpful when the tag, marker, or identifier needs to be replaced or moved to another location. In the medical industry, residue could be a contaminant or a misuse of valuable time.
