Why Make Us Your Supplier of Sterile Labels for Surgery?
The term sterile labels can refer to two types of labels: Labels that indicate a product has been sterilized, and labels that are sterile. In this entry, we focus on the latter type of labels concerning their usefulness for surgical procedures. If you need sterile labels for surgery, below are four important options you have when you order them from Shamrock Labeling Systems.
- Labels With Drug Names
We offer pre-printed labels that feature names of drugs that are commonly used in surgery. Examples include: Lidocaine, Marcaine, Heparin, and Thrombin. Because surgery-related drugs are partly responsible for the health outcome of the patient, it’s always a good idea to have the drug names clearly printed in bold font.
Writing drugs names by hand can be unreliable. If it were difficult to read the name of a drug due to poor penmanship, the medication might be mistaken for a different one. Our labels that come with printed drug names help reduce this type of human error, and ensure that patients receive the right medication.
- Labels With Pen and Ruler
We also offer packs of sterile labels for surgery that contain a ruler you can place beneath information fields to ensure you are writing in the correct field, and a pen that’s designed to write on labels without smearing or causing bleedthrough. If this is your first time ordering sterile labels for surgery, getting this package that offers additional support is a great idea.
- On-Demand or Bulk Orders
Large hospitals typically use a large volume of sterile labels for surgery. So, it makes sense for them to purchase in bulk to reduce cost per label. On the flipside, hospitals that perform a low number of surgeries can benefit from having labels printed on-demand. Whenever the hospital needs more labels, the order is processed and shipped quickly. On-demand printing is a great option for hospitals that need to monitor and/or minimize operating costs day by day.
- Labels That are Customized
Many of our customers can use our stock labels without a problem. However, there are also customers who need a custom label solution for their specific surgical practices. Once custom labels are created, their design specs are saved in a database, which allows you to place new orders without going through the tiresome process of re-submitting design information for each order.
