    We have the OK to attach an additional band to the bed itself if the patient has problems with with the band. I'm sure that wouldn't work everywhere, as we are a private room only hospital, and there is little opportunity for bed mixups.

    Could you possibly put one around the ankle?

    I vote for indelible marker across the forehead in neon colors that glow in the dark!
