Nurses are important persons in any hospital. Patients interact with them more often than doctors. Nurses are more visible and easier to call when a patient needs something. This is the reason nurses wear name badges. When a patient is confined in a hospital, he is usually visited by the nurses to give him his medications and to check if he needs anything. The nurses also ensure that the patient undergoes all the necessary tests as prescribed by his doctor. Nurses are good-natured and cheerful to make the patients feel at ease and make the patients stay at the hospital more bearable. Nurses wear name badges to remind the patients of their names.
Patients especially those who are in pain, cannot remember the names of the nurses who helped them and they may feel embarrassed that they cannot remember. With the help of the name badges, the patients will not feel awkward and can easily thank the nurses for helping him. They will feel comfortable talking to the nurses and an amiable relationship is established. Although no one likes to stay in a hospital, at least having a friendly atmosphere will make his confinement manageable. As there are many types of nurses, there are also many types of name badges. The hospital management will decide what kinds of name badges are suitable for their nurses.
The hospital management can choose name badges made from plastic wherein the photo of the nurse is also displayed as an added security measure for the hospital. Metal name badges are also ideal for nurses and medical staff because they look formal and exclusive. They are smaller that plastic name badges so they will not get in the way when nurses are handling patients. Nurses and medical staff look professional with the metal name badges.
