Introducing the ID-TAD: An LCD Enhanced Tag Tester

Posted by Chris Konicek on October 10, 2017 9:32 am

Accutech introduces a new LCD based mobile tag test unit that offers additional tag information and testing capabilities. Staff can now verify tag numbers, review warranty dates and check remaining battery life from an LCD screen. The unit also features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and built in tag (so it can't leave the unit without triggering an alarm).

An Enhanced Handheld to Give You More of the Tag Information You Need


Our ID-TAD (Identification Tag Activator/Deactivator) handheld devices will help staff spend less time visiting the tagtest station and more time focused on patient care. Ensure that your nurses can do more than just turn tags on and off or be indicated when there is a low battery. With new ID-TAD handheld devices nurses can now  review battery life (exact percentage remaining), tag number and warranty dates from an LCD screen at a patient’s bedside. We’re excited to bring you an even easier way to ensure your patients are safe and secure without having to repeatedly visit the tag test station.

Working in a hospital or care facility is just as much exhilarating as it is exhausting. Your nurses and staff are expected to be here, there, and everywhere responding to any number of things. With so much responsibility and care in their hands, it’s vital they have what they need, when they need it. That’s why getting patient information as well as security tag details is important. With every patient’s security and care being in the hands of your hospital staff, they should be able to easily review the details of a security tag.


Security Tag Details from the Patient’s Bedside

We know that patients come into contact with staff many times throughout their day and their overall stay. On average, a patient has six encounters each day with staff—that’s a lot for a someone who is trying to recover or relax to handle. But we know it’s important for staff to know what is going on with their patients throughout the day.

That’s why we created a better way to make at least one of these encounters a little less invasive but just as informative. With the new ID-TAD (Identification Tag Activator/Deactivator) handheld device you don’t need to remove a patient or resident’s security tag to then take it to the tag test station. Instead nurses and staff can access information from a patient or resident’s security tag right from the palm of their hand. This means staff can securely and easily read a patient’s tag number, warranty date and remaining battery life from an easy-to-read LCD screen.

Not only does this streamline the day-to-day of your staff by lessening the number of times they need to visit the tag test station, but it also provides enhanced comfort and care for patients.


Ensuring Patient Safety and Peace of Mind

Focusing on a patient’s care also means focusing on their safety and peace of mind. We know it’s important for patients and residents to feel comfortable and secure where they are. The last thing you want to do is disrupt their care or their day-to-day to simply verify their security tag is matched and working. That's why our new ID-TAD handheld device allows staff to discreetly view an LCD screen to verify tag numbers, review warranty dates and check remaining battery life. They can also review, test and switch tags on or off without triggering any false alarms for new mothers and their infants, children in a pediatric setting, or residents who are being cared for in your facility.

Our new ID-TAD handheld device takes a step above our competition and put the needs for your staff and patients first. Your staff can test the battery life of any patient’s security tags on a regular basis (we recommend every two weeks) without creating stress or unnecessary false alarms. Plus they'll be able to refer to our easy-to-read LCD screen to verify tag matches, ensure tags are under warranty and check remaining battery life percentage.
