Hello everyone! I am working with our nursing staff getting ready for next year's JCAHO survey. In the safety initiative there is a question on using two identifyers for medication/lab and patient identification. It appears a lot of hospitals are using name and date of birth. But, on a newborn in the OB Department what is everyone using? If medications or lab come to the floor nothing but the birth date matches the newborns ID band. Does anyone have a suggestion?
