    We have barcoding as well.  We also have trouble with patients keeping them on.  We have looked into some vests.  Kate

    Our institution does barcode scanning and we continue to have issues with patients keeping ID bands on. Has anyone done any improvement work surrounding this and it has worked?? Any and all feedback is appreciated!
