ID Card Group, a leading provider of ID card printers, ID systems, supplies, and accessories is now offering an expanded selection of medical ID badge role identifiers – known as Badge Buddies – to help healthcare facilities in Texas comply with the recently passed Texas HB 2897 legislation.
The Texas HB 2897 requirements state that the ID badge of a worker who delivers direct care to patients must feature the worker’s licensed title printed in clear text. The new healthcare law specifies more than 24 titles, including: physician, doctor, physician assistant, registered nurse, licensed vocational nurse, paramedic, pharmacist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and more.
“Ensuring proper medical staff identification remains vital for site access control and patient safety. And using ID badge role identifiers to help patients easily recognize their caregivers can reduce anxiety in stressful situations,” says Jim House, ID Card Group general manager. “ID Card Group has expanded its inventory to address the new Texas healthcare requirements and to offer medical staff and healthcare professionals more choices at better prices.”
All newly available Badge Buddy hanging badge holders feature bright colors and bold text to make role titles clearly visible. Color-coded, slotted, and fully laminated, Badge Buddies are reusable and ship ready for instant use. Both horizontal and vertical styles are available.
Badge Buddies can be integrated easily into existing ID programs, as they hang behind the caregiver’s current ID Badge and clip into place easily with an existing lanyard or badge reel. With Badge Buddies role identifiers there is no need to completely overhaul an ID program to ensure compliance.
ID Card Group offers additional medical ID badge supplies, such as vinyl lanyards specifically designed for use in sterile settings and temporary (expiring) staff and visitor badges that change color when the authorization expires.
Expiring (temporary) badges offer an easy and economical way to manage visitors and temporary personnel. Featuring an easy-to-see color change that gradually becomes darker as the badge expires, expiring temp badges allow anyone to see immediately if the visitor or temporary staff person is authorized to be on the premises – or if the badge has expired.
“Most importantly,” adds House “these expiring temporary badges are not affected by light, so the expiration process works indoors and outdoors, day or night.”
Vinyl translucent lanyards are designed for workers within sterile settings. Made from 100% metal-free, non-absorbent rubber, these economical and flexible plastic lanyards are easy to wipe clean of contaminants. Safety is ensured via a plastic safety breakaway clasp, which releases the lanyard if caught in a device or doorway.
In addition to the medical staff Badge Buddy identifiers, expiring badges, and lanyards suited specifically for healthcare environments, ID Card Group carries blank PVC ID cards, plastic card printers, and ID card systems that enable healthcare facilities to design and print their own photo identification cards, meal cards, gift and club cards, and more. ID Card Group’s low price guarantee backs all products and brands in the store.
