Pennsylvania now requires physicians and employees who provide direct patient care to wear photo identification badges. The goal of this requirement is to help patients understand who is providing their care and what level of training their caregiver has received. Physicians and their employees in private medical practices are required to wear ID badges as of December 10, 2011.
The ACMS has partnered with Total ID Solutions to provide professionally printed plastic id badges. The cost for a ready to wear badge complete with clip is $ 4.95 per badge plus shipping.
Ordering is simple:
Total Id Solutions will process and print your order and ship directly to you by UPS or US mail.
If you would prefer to print ID Badges yourself
The Pennsylvania Medical Society has created a template to allow you to assemble and print your own badges. The instructions and information can be found at www.pamedsoc.org.
