Patient Identification

Correct patient identification prior to any medication, treatment or procedure is important to prevent errors in patient care. HPHA is committed to ensuring the safety of our patients by requiring staff to confirm your identification using a double patient identifier method prior to initiating any medical treatment or procedure.

Upon your admission, you will have a band containing your specific personal identification information applied to your wrist. In pediatric cases, this may be placed around the ankle for comfort.

Please notify a staff member immediately if any of this information is wrong. To ensure your safety, we will check or scan your ID band and ask you to confirm your identity many times during your visit, for example before you receive medications and before tests and/or procedures.
