Patient Wristband Identification
The patient wristbands contain important information about you to help first responder and other emergency crew best support you during an emergency. Facilities can give the bands out to patients whenever they feel is best. We suggest coastal areas give out the patient bands each year at the start of hurricane season, while other facilities choose to hand them out in preparation for an anticipated weather emergency. Others give them out once a year; it’s up to what you think is best for your facility and patient population.
