Employee ID Badge Resources

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.

Professionally Printed Employee ID Badges

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.
