green- blood band
hot pink- no iv/bp/needle sticks
green star on bracelet- fall risk
There is also a "falling star magnet" in the doorway. I think these are a great idea.
Fluid restrictions, and signs for no bps or needlesticks are posted at the head of the bed also.
I have seen places that have hollisters at the head of the bed, and all kinds of little signs with goodies can be put at the HOB. (type of diet, stool specs needed, allergies, DNR, etc.) I personally feel that there are some things that visitors and pts in the next bed DONT need to know.
