Patient Care Signage
Effective communication begins with the Patient Care Sign.
In a healthcare setting, getting crucial information in a matter of seconds is essential. But misinformation in patient care can lead to medical errors, currently the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Your patients’ health and medical liability are on the line and you need medical signage that clearly communicates crucial patient information to all healthcare staff. Our Patient Care Sign (PCS) takes the typical patient room signs to the next level by quickly and effectively communicating critical patient information to every doctor, nurse, or clinician. Staff education prior to attending to a patient will foster a safer environment and improve the customer service experience for your patients and their families.
THE ORIGINAL PATIENT CARE SIGN
We are the originators of the patented, tamper-proof locking tab system element included with each of our patient care signage products. This exclusive locking tab system sets our sign apart from any other patient care sign on the market.
WHY DOES A LOCKING TAB FEATURE MATTER?
Locking tabs ensure that there is no ambiguity from half-exposed icons. Medical personnel will have the peace of mind in knowing that critical information will lock securely in place, while at the same time easily unlock with a unique push-and-slide system to update patient details quickly.
CUSTOMIZABLE ICONS FOR ALL PCS SOLUTIONS
Healthcare isn’t a one-size-fits-all industry and your PCS shouldn’t be either. Our customizable medical signage system is suitable for any and all facilities. Easily create tailor-made signage by choosing the patient condition icons that your facility, department, or unit uses most often from our icon library. If you can’t find what you need, we can design any medical symbol or icon to maximize the effectiveness and use of the signage.
OUR PATIENT CARE SIGN IS CLINICALLY PROVEN & COMPLIANT.
Misinformed medical staff can lead to extreme and unprecedented medical errors, which may cause loss of life. Our Patient Care Sign solutions not only feature a patented design but also comply with all medical standards. Here are a few examples of how:
- Complies with all ADA and HIPAA standards
- Ensures better outcomes for National Patient Safety Goal programs
- Reduces incidents of HAI (Hospital-Acquired Infection)
- Combines room identification, critical patient status information, and Infectious Disease Control placards all in one area
- Offers additional opportunities for communication including chart holders, writing surfaces, and display rails.
- Increases HCAHPS (the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores
We had a major shift from hanging laminated papers on hooks on patient room doors to now using the PCS which has increased presentability, uniformity, communication, and safety for all. Having the acrylic windows available for customized inserts has been very useful as well, with our graphic designers making inserts that match the style of the outer sign.
The patient care sign helps improve communication at the hospital by allowing us to communicate with all different staff members.
It improves communication because it is immediate communication that can happen between caregivers.
