Banding Together

“Banding Together – for patient safety” was launched in March, 2007 following the work of the Center for Patient Safety’s 16-member Colored Wristband Work Group. The Work Group assessed findings of a survey of Missouri hospitals and nursing homes about how colored wristbands were being used. The Work Group also assessed other state’s activities to standardize colored wristbands.¬† More than 100 hospitals participated in the implementation of standardized wristbands (see the full list) and contributed to safer care across organizations, systems, and states.
