Get Labeled

April 1, 2005

To save time, decrease writing, reduce pharmacy calls, and ensure that specimens are properly labeled.

To save time, decrease writing, reduce pharmacy calls, and ensure that specimens are properly labeled, link your patient database to a dedicated label printer and keep 6 to 10 labels on each patient's chart. Instead of writing a patient's name on a prescription or specimen jar, simply peel off a label and affix it to the object in question.
