Quote from canoehead
When we used tape we found that going back a few months later the tape had become opaque, so you could not see the vital signs that landed under the tape. Some people like glue sticks, I lay out the strips on the photocopier and make a copy of the whole group at once, then label the paper.
Yes, we also have seen that fading with scotch tape. Our medical records department would prefer we not use it. But, right now, its what most of us use. I try not to cover anything of importance with the tape. I would, however, prefer to use double sided tape with a dispenser designed for the purpose. That way, there's no tape to fade on the strip. Copying is not really an option for us. It would take far too much time for all of us to use the copy machine, besides copies are never as clear as the originals (could be a legal liability as well).
