Care providers ask for your name
During your hospital admission, you'll come into contact with various care providers (physicians, nurses …) responsible for giving you the best care possible.
Every care provider has his own contribution to make. Because it is important to know who you are at any given time, you'll notice that at various staged in your treatment people will ask you again about your name and date of birth or that they will check the data on your identification wristband.
When administering medication, this is done by scanning the bar code on the identification wristband.
