Specimen Collection

INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE SAMPLE IDENTIFICATION ERRORS

Misidentified samples create a serious risk to patient safety, potentially resulting in misdiagnosis and/or incorrect treatment. With Zebra’s mobile devices and printers, healthcare workers can print labels at the point of care and perform a three-point check: specimen order, patient wristband and labeled container. Your staff can be confident the right specimen is collected from the right patient at the right time and placed in the right container — so patients receive the right test results — and the right treatment.

IMPROVE PATIENT SAFETY

Zebra wristband solutions give staff immediate access to critical patient information at the bedside and across all hospital departments.

IDENTIFY, TRACK AND MANAGE

Handheld computers allow everyone from nurses to lab technicians to scan and print barcodes for accurate specimen collection and analysis.


ACCESS INFORMATION QUICKLY

Test results are logged promptly, providing doctors with accurate data for correct decisions for timely treatment.


SPECIMEN COLLECTION BARCODE LABELING

According to a College of American Pathologists study1, specimen labeling errors account for 55.5 percent of identification errors. Point-of-care barcode labeling is an important strategy to help prevent these types of errors. Learn how printing and applying identification labels at the point of care promotes patient safety by improving sample identification and reducing opportunities for errors to enter the process.
