The GK420 works well in the Healthcare and hospital arena. Engineered for years of performance in healthcare environments, Zebra’s GK420 Healthcare printers deliver advancements in healthcare-specific construction and electrical certifications. Available in both direct thermal and thermal transfer models, healthcare professionals can print labels and wristbands anywhere in a healthcare facility for nearly any application.
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
