Considerations upon Admission

Name Bands

A name band is placed on the patient’s wrist to correctly identify the patient and be able to quickly confirm the patient’s name in the event of an unforeseen occurrence outside the hospital ward. Many staff members are involved when a hospitalized patient undergoes tests, surgery or treatment. Some of the staff will be dealing with the patient for the first time. The name band is a means for personnel to identify the patient in such circumstances.
Although it may be inconvenient since it must be worn on the patient’s wrist, we hope that its purpose is understood and ask for your cooperation in wearing the band and confirming your name. Please inform a member of staff if you wish to remove the name band when you will be away from the hospital.
