Benefits for caregivers at the bedside

Caregivers can be more efficient and streamline their workflow with the help of a portable solution.

Brother patient Identification solutions allows caregivers to maintain accuracy and assurance for their patients.

Make sure no errors are made during diagnosis or with surgical procedures by printing documentation rather than handwriting.

Our devices are portable, compact and able to fit on crowded desktops and carts.

Our printers use a wide range of label sizes and types to meet your healthcare requirement.

Our TD series has both built in and optional features to help caregivers optimise their workflows.


Bedside care 

Patient identification at the bedside is of upmost importance to ensure the right care is administered. It is essential that an efficient and accurate barcode and labelling workflow is in place to minimise errors from poorly labelled samples and wristbands.

Studies have revealed that;

"17% of mistakes in blood administration in Germany over a four-year period were down to patient identification errors, 4 leading in the worst cases to patients receiving the wrong blood transfusions."  

A Brother portable labelling solution could minimise the risk in your healthcare clinic.

Typical applications include:


      Patient wristbands

Print and apply at the patient's bedside


      Blood sample labels

Up to 2 inch


        Blood bag labels

Up to 4 inch

Care where it's needed most


Our Brother TD-2000 2 inch series has a whole host of benefits for nurses, enabling them to optimise their healthcare operations and maintain safety for patients.

The range offers both label and wristband printing capabilities so patient samples and ID bands can be printed at the bedside using the same machine. This increases efficiency whilst also reducing the risk of errors being made.

Furthermore, the rechargeable battery pack and neat design with a minimal footprint size mean it can be easily stored on a cart, busy counter or virtually anywhere within the healthcare environment.

No margin for error

Patient safety is at the forefront of all caregivers priorities. The implications of poorly labelled files and wristbands and illegible documentation is costly not only to the patient but to the healthcare establishment as well. Whether it's incorrect treatment or the wasted time of staff on site, Brother explored the wider reaching problems that patient ID errors can cause.

"We must respect the rules and regulations regarding patient identification. We have to track all patients' identities to deliver the right medical health care for all administrative tasks."
