Zebra DS4608-HC Healthcare Scanner

Protect patient health and safety with the next generation scanning

This versatile healthcare scanner does more for your whole hospital.  NICU nurses scan an ankle bracelet to confirm a newborn's identity.  Nurses scan IV bags to record time and dosage.  Pharmacists scan a medication's barcode to cross-check it with the prescribed dosage.  And lab techs scan barcodes to carefully track specimens.


Barcode scanning at a patient's bedside is crucial in preventing medication and specimen mix-ups - two of the potentially deadliest errors in a hospital.  Scanning barcodes in a hospital can be challenging.  There are many types of barcodes including paper-based, an electronic screen, codes printed on a curved surface, high density codes or very small bar codes in all type of conditions - from smudged to scratched to poorly printed.


Now you can give your healthcare workers the ability to scan them all with the Zebra DS4608-HC.  This feature-rich next generation 2D imager resets the bar for scanning performance, scanning range, versatility and ease-of-use.  This scanner is the ideal companion for laptops on workstation-on-wheels (wows).
