In every health facility, there is becoming an increasing need to identify those patients that have special requirements. We have created Medical Alert bracelets to advise staff of those requirements. These wristbands are normally worn for 1-2 days, are waterproof and are a single use application. Using coloured wristbands is a highly visible form of communication for those special needs. Wristbands have been created with the following labels: Limb Alert, Latex Allergy, Fall Risk, DNR and Allergy Alert. They are best utilized in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Retirement Homes and Long Term Care Facilities.
