Due to some unique circumstances with our behavioral health patients, not all patients are willing to wear an arm band. We have implemented photo ID process to verify these patients.
The question has come up about using BCMA on these patients. For example, is it acceptable to attached the patient ID barcode to the photo?
Has anyone else implemented a process similar to this? How does your organization handle the BCMA aspect?
