Identification band

To ensure your safety and confirm your identity, you will be required to wear patient identification (ID) bands at all times during your hospital stay. This ID band will be red if you have any allergies. 

You can expect your ID band to be checked multiple times during your stay. Though this may seem inconvenient and repetitive it will ensure we are providing you with the correct care and treatment.

For security and identification purposes, parents of children going to theatre will be asked to wear an ID band for when they are called to be with their children in the Post-Anaesthetic Care Unit.
