Extensive use of barcode technology ensures superior patient safety and a rapid turnaround. Hand-held computers with label printers are used by phlebotomists (those certified to draw blood samples) on the Elyria, Amherst and Avon campuses to scan patient information directly from their bar-coded wristbands. Labels are applied to specimens at the patient's bedside, enhancing patient safety with positive sample ID.
