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.
