Red Cross uses Mobile Barcode Computers from Motorola Specimen tracking

See video link above, because without mobility, nurses and laboratory technicians must locate and check paperwork to determine what tests have been ordered, verify patient identity through a visual check of the patient wristband and then manually label the specimen. Any error in any of these steps can have disastrous results.

But when staff carries mobile devices capable of scanning bar codes, a quick scan of the specimen order, the patient wristband and the specimen label container provides a three-way check. Your staff can feel confident that, even when pushed for time, the right specimen is collected from the right patient at the right time and placed in the right container, ensuring the right results — and the right course of treatment
