Communication Labels for Nursing: What We Offer as Your Supplier


We typically give physicians most of the credit for good health outcomes in hospital patients, but nurses play a vital role in health outcomes, as well.

Physicians — along with the assistance of nurse practitioners — make official diagnoses, perform specialized procedures, and prescribe meds. But nurses also help physicians to help identify and more importantly communicate a variety of health-related tasks that many hospitalist physicians simply don’t have the time to handle, such as:

  • Identifying when trash or soiled linens must be isolated
  • Determining when food and drink should be temporarily discontinued
  • Assessing when a liquid diet should be implemented
  • Citing when medicare certification is needed
  • Noting when no medication should be given
  • Deciding when patients need hygiene care
  • Identifying when certain types of therapy are required
  • Determining when prescriptions need to be reordered

It’s a broad range of duties, but, when it comes to the responsibilities of an RN, listed above is just the tip of the iceberg. Yet, all of the tasks mentioned — and many other tasks nurses perform in professional health care settings — have something in common: They can all be facilitated with the use of communication labels for nursing, which are labels that facilitate communication between nurses and other parties involved in the hospital care process.
