Video demonstration - Automating labeling

Vigilant’s Verify CCU solution enables nurses to print high-quality IV tube labels with all the necessary information.

Nurses simply scan their ID and the drug’s barcode to generate compliant, three-part labels. A detailed description of the label can be seen below. 

No handwriting involved. Easily read by ALL the caregivers on shift as well as colleagues on future shifts. Eliminates errors when it is unclear a line needs changing. Increases safety by reducing infection risks. Allows nurses to spend more of their precious time focused on the patient.

Vigilant ICU solution

Streamlining error-prone tasks for ICU nurses

Vigilant prioritizes patient safety. Whether it is our
syringe labeling or IV tubing solution, the Vigilant team
developed the Verify labeling system to optimize patient safety.

Vigilant recognizes that in order to see adoption and use by ICU staff, we must create a labeling process which is incredibly easy-to-use. Critical care nurses desperately want to spend their precious time focused on the patient. Vigilant Verify ICU enables that with a quick, two-scan process. Simply scanning an employee ID and medicine’s NDC prompts Verify ICU to print an immaculate, three-part IV tube label.

How Vigilant’s Verify ICU System Benefits the ICU

Patient Safety

Prevent Bloodstream Infections

Verify ICU knows how long each medication can be administered safely via intravenous infusion. Each printed label is color-coded to remind staff when IV tubing needs to be changed. Eliminating the need for mental calculation and standardizing label design, Verify ICU protects patients from bloodstream infections by making it easy for staff to recognize when IV lines need to be changed.

Prevent Infusion Errors

Verify ICU takes less than a second to print a three set labels for each infusion. Providing ICU staff with labels to tag IV tubing at both the patient- and pump-ends, Verify ICU makes following best practices easy, decreasing risk of IV misidentification and resulting patient complications.

High-Risk Drug Warnings

  • 60% of life-threatening errors in the hospital involve IV infusions.
  • 20 high-risk drugs account for approximately 80% of fatalities from medication error.
  • 85% of IV errors intercepted are caught by nurses.[4]

Verify ICU labels include additional, highly-visible warnings for high-risk drugs. This provides a final check at which staff can identify misordered medications.

Staff Efficiency

Simplified Labeling Process

Verify ICU eliminates the need for hand-written labels in the ICU. Staff simply scan their ID and a drug’s NDC barcode; Verify ICU takes care of the rest. Simultaneously printing both IV line-identification and changing-time labels, our solution decreases the time required for staff to correctly label infusions from minutes to seconds.

Fast IV Line Identification

Verify ICU makes it easy for staff to identify IV lines in patients with multiple infusions. Consistent, legible labels aid staff in line-tracing when adjusting infusions and ensure continuity and clarity of information between shifts. IV system labeling solutions like Verify IV have been shown to decrease infusion identification time by 62% when used with best practices.[5]


Label Contents

Studies have shown that up to 71% of infusions administered in the ICU are not labeled according to hospital policy.[6] The current non-standardized, time-consuming labeling process simply does not encourage compliance. Verify ICU automates and standardizes label creation. Each label set includes drug name, administration time and date, required change date, administering staff name, and relevant drug alerts, making 100% label content compliance possible in the ICU.

IV Line Tagging

Following insufficient label content, noncompliant IV line tagging is the second most frequent infusion error in the ICU.[6] Verify ICU prints a three-part set of labels instantly. Each set includes one large, descriptive label and two smaller labels for tagging the IV tubing, providing staff with everything they need to tag IV lines in compliance with best practices.

Verify ICU is Easy to Integrate

We understand that caring for patients is what matters most to healthcare staff. That’s why we strive to make it easy for hospitals to integrate Verify ICU into their intensive care units with as little hassle as possible.

  • No IT setup necessary. The Verify ICU stand-alone solution comes pre-loaded with an NDC database, tailored with your hospital specific required IV tubing change times.
