Badge Labeling Tips

Posted by: Paula on May 8, 2008

In order to help keep track of Vocera badges, it’s a good idea to create a labeling scheme. For instance, have your Labor & Delivery unit badges labeled as L&D-1, L&D-2, etc. This helps units keep track of their inventory. It’s also helpful if users try to use the same badge every day. It helps keep them from getting lost if someone from each shift is always looking for “their” badge and they know who uses it on the prior shift.

Dymo and P-touch labels do the job quite well. Consider making the labels with enough tape to wrap around the badge and into the battery area. This way the edges are under the battery and are less likely to curl up and contribute to the labels falling off.

It’s also a good idea to write the label info next to the bar code on the badge label using a fine-tip permanent marker. That way if the outside label does come off, you can find the info under the battery.
