Benefits for paramedics and admissions staff

Paramedics are more efficient with the ability to produce patient records at the click of a button.

Pass over all updated records related to the patient so caregivers can administer the correct diagnosis and treatment.

Documentation is free from handwritten errors so staff receiving the patient's records can fully understand it.

Portable devices enable paramedics to update patient records on the move.

With no moving parts or ink spillages, our printers need little maintenance and offer enhanced reliability within a moving ambulance.

Paramedics can take advantage of Brother's in-vehicle solutions to help optimise their workflow.

Wristband and patient file printing

Admitting the patient

Patient files and wristbands are the most essential form of patient identification. Accuracy is paramount for caregivers to ensure the correct treatment and medication is provided, as well as time saved for healthcare staff on-site.

"Labels are very useful. As soon as a person comes in we make small labels; they are used very widely. We do not have a backup solution other than doing it by hand, which is time consuming."
