Putting patients at ease with smart and effective technology
Wednesday, 27 September, 2017
If you find yourself in the emergency room as a patient, things have probably not gone your way in recent times. Chances are you would prefer to be anywhere else and so when it comes time to be admitted, the more effortless that process is, the better. This is where the Brother TD-2000 series printers can assist in patient care by streamlining admissions — especially when it comes to Patient ID printing. In addition to speed, it also allows for higher reliability and can improve patient safety by utilising smarter and safer patient ID techniques and barcode medical administration system integration.
A brief prepared by the Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research in 2013 found that barcode point of care systems “have the potential to reduce administration errors but are sometimes used incorrectly due to technology limitations and poor design e.g. faulty barcodes”. It is therefore essential that any barcode system be infallible, especially when relied on for the wellbeing of a patient. The report conclusions stated that these systems rely on well-designed technology that is being used correctly by caregivers. The TD-2000 series is designed specifically to make the process simple and easy to use while maintaining high reliability and accuracy.
The TD-2000 series uses barcode point of care technology for real-time verification of crucial information like patient details, what medication they require and dosage as well as time and route. It is also compatible with TrustSense™ media from PDC Healthcare — a trusted leader in positive patient identification for more than 55 years, which adds an extra level of reliability. This technology used in the printer series can provide automated alerts to caregivers in order to eliminate potential harmful errors before they occur, helping to protect patients, provide peace of mind for clinicians, and maintain compliance with important patient safety regulations.
