Infirmary ED Celebrated for Improving ID Scanning

Congratulations to the Infirmary ED for increasing positive patient identification (scanning armbands) and positive accession identification (scanning accession on tube labeled at bedside) from 30% compliance to 90% compliance in both categories during one quarter!

Making this improvement even more impressive is that the 30% rate had been consistent for several years, and during this one quarter of dramatic improvement, there were more than 40,000 scans!
