LNI knows that Australian emergency services work around the clock to ensure the welfare of all Australians. Badging, metal nameplates and labels for firefighters, police, paramedics and hospital emergency departments necessitate a demanding level of communication, maintenance and cleaning in order to meet performance, health and safety standards.
In 2018, an average of about 22,000 people present to Australian public hospital emergency departments and 381,000 visit a general practitioner per day. Overall, 71% of emergency department visits were completed then cleaned within four hours and 90% of emergency department visits were completed then cleaned within seven hours.
Within this time frame each piece of equipment will be handled and therefore soiled, each hospital bed will be knocked in hallways, all will be scrubbed and cleaned, at the same time with the expectation that the labels will stay visible and complete.
The clear issue is that low quality nameplates fade, badges will scratch, and labelling can peel off which may heavily affect the day to day running of a department. As regular servicing and inspections are required to maintain safety and quality of equipment, it is vital that maintenance information be clearly visible to ensure medical staff can do their job correctly.
Making sure your branding and information stands out is important to make these jobs easier wherever possible. This includes 3D badges on medical equipment, serial nameplates on machines, inspection labels on cabinets, beds and side tables, along with graphic panels on electronic devices. Let's also not forget the important information needed on labels and metal nameplates in emergency vehicles like ambulances, police cars and fire trucks.
