It's an oval plastic thing that clips to your scrub top and it's able to track where nurses are? Is there a trade name for them or are they called something?
It is a radio frequency ID chip. I always called it a "slacker tracker". I work from home now.Every minute of my activity is followed and documented by IT. Welcome to George Orwell's 1984.

Thanks. I'm looking at them to attach to our portable ultrasound machines, which often get "borrowed," not for our nurses.
It's not a Vocera.
So, for those of you who use them, I'm just looking for brands for my research, not editorial opinions on the devices themselves. Hill-Rom is helpful. I just don't know what they're called.
