For years, DuraFast Label Company has been supporting customers in Canada’s healthcare industry with a wide range of color and monochromatic label printing solutions. Healthcare providers routinely use both color inkjet and thermal label printers in their practices.
How Label Printers are Used in Healthcare
The surge caused by coronavirus has resulted in an increased reliance on label printers for everything from patient identification and lab tests to informational labels, color-coded badges, wristbands, cafeteria food labels, incoming donation labels, mask labels, inventory labels, follow-up care cards, chart labels, and more. Most of these labels must be printed on demand, requiring easy-to-use label design software, compact label printers, network connectivity, and a healthy supply of durable, high quality blank labels.
For example, the moment a patient is admitted to the hospital, a patient identification wristband can be printed at the admission desk complete with a barcode or even a photo. Labels associated with that patient can be affixed to lab specimens, blood and urine samples, diagnostic tests, food, medical charts, X-rays, and more. Meanwhile, hospital staff regularly use color and thermal label printers to print care instructions, visitors passes, employee badges, and informational signage.
As more hospitals and clinics rapidly expand to accommodate an influx of patients, the use of portable and handheld label printers can be helpful. Having a label printer inside a makeshift treatment area can help keep staff from having to share resources with other departments. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and battery operated portable label printers are available.
