D-5. LABELS
a. Identification Badge (Name Badge Labels NB4253-10). Applicants processing at the MEPS (regardless of sponsorship or status) will wear a System-generated identification badge. MEPS will not manually add any PII, PHI, or “unnecessary remarks” to the badge. MEPS are not required to collect the badges upon processing completion.

These labels run on a Zebra, Cognitive, Honeywell, or other Direct Thermal Desktop printer.

The PX940 series takes industrial printing to a new level of accuracy and simplicity.

Why BCMA(BPOC) is so important..

It’s important for the patients and the hospitals.  About 15 years ago there were three quarters of a million Adverse drug event(ADE) reports.  With the advent of many EHR and barcode medication administration systems-that number is decreasing everyday.

We need to continue the push:

  • Patients who experienced adverse drug events (ADEs) were hospitalized an average of 8 to 12 days longer than patients who did not suffer ADEs, and their hospitalization cost $16,000 to $24,000 more.
  • Anywhere from 28 percent to 95 percent of ADEs can be prevented by reducing medication errors through computerized monitoring systems.
  • Computerized medication order entry has the potential to prevent an estimated 84 percent of dose, frequency, and route errors.
  • Hospitals can save as much as $500,000 annually in direct costs by using computerized systems.
