Medline Sterile Labels for the operating room are designed to help hospitals and surgery centers meet the new JCAHO National Patient Safety Goals calling for sterile OR labeling. Medline Sterile Labels have an advanced adhesive that allows them to remain sticky following sterilization and/or if the labels get wet. Their special coating prevents the ink from smearing when labels get wet and allows the user to write on the labels. Medline Sterile Labels include preprinted and blank labels. All labels include a line for the name and strength of the medication, the date of the procedure, and initials of the person preparing the labels (also a JCAHO requirement).
