Badge Buddies

Coming in third on the list is Badge Buddies. While most popular in the medical field, Badge buddies are useful in various industries and are designed specifically to function alongside pre-existing staff ID cards to denote each individual's position. They are used by speakers, organizers, schools (to identify staff and volunteers), and even special recognition of employee achievements and milestones.

Badge buddies allow for easy identification of key hospital crew members, including nurses, students, doctors, RN, LPN, LVN, and more. By adding a colored badge buddy role card behind existing photo IDs, both staff and patients will easily recognize personnel, especially in a busy hospital environment. The color-coded badges make identification easy from a distance and customized to make employees stand out.
