Color-Coded Wristbands 
The lack of consistency in wristband meanings and in how they are applied presents problems when patients are transferred among facilities and when patients are cared for by clinicians who work in multiple facilities. A group of healthcare organizations in northeastern and central Pennsylvania  started a grassroots effort, The Color of Safety Task Force, to meet the challenge of making this practice safer. The task force made an implementation manual and other resources available to the Patient Safety Authority.
