What to Expect from Your Healthcare-Grade Labels

Posted July 27, 2020

Errors and healthcare simply don’t mix, yet studies suggest that more than half[1] of lab errors occur as a result of improper labeling. From wasted medical supplies to fatal mistakes, improper healthcare labeling damages a hospital’s operations from the inside out. To eliminate unnecessary risks, we recommend reviewing label performance by certifying your printing supplies fulfill the following expectations:

  • Long-lasting adhesive strength – Your labels carry vital information wherever they go, which means that a missing label can stop your workflow and implicate patient care.
  • Temperature endurance – Because medical assets and medications can transition between drastic temperatures throughout the day, labels should be fitted to endure constant temperature swings in order to preserve identification.
  • Crisp legibility regardless size – From large operating machinery to small test tubes, every healthcare asset requires reliable identification. Simplify data capture with smear-resistant barcodes that fit your custom label.
  • Writable surface – Since caregivers will most likely need to write on your labels, minimize time spent looking for appropriate pens and integrate writable surfaces into your labeling solution.
  • Chemical resistance – Last but not least, healthcare labels should be able to endure abrasive and/or corrosive chemicals as well as disinfectants in order to protect information.
