Collection: Healthcare

Welcome to our Healthcare Collection Page.  Let's Identify Your Heroes™. Every badge reel, badge buddy, and ID cardholder was carefully selected based on feedback from nurses, administrators, and HR teams from healthcare organizations all over the U.S.

This page is designed to help you quickly find the most popular ID accessories that will help your teams spend less time searching and more time doing the work that matters most.

If you work in the healthcare industry, you know how important it is to keep your ID badge easily accessible. Whether scanning into a patient's room or grabbing a quick cup of coffee in the break room, you need to reach for your badge without fear of it falling off of your scrubs or around your neck. That's where Specialist ID comes in handy! 

Lanyards are comfortable to wear and rest softly along your shoulders to ensure your badge is always within reach. Badge reels on a retractable cord easily extend for use and snap back into place. Badge holders are protective sleeves that offer a more secure option for nurses to carry their credentials. They protect your ID from damage or gradual ink loss. Lastly, badge buddies are perfect for employees with specific job titles and responsibilities, so the risk of confusion decreases. Whether you're looking for function or fashion (or both!), Specialist ID offers the best lanyards, badge reels, and holders to fit your needs. 

Nurses are at the front of patient care and play a vital role in the healthcare system. As a result, it's essential for nurses to be easily identifiable and to have quick access to the tools they need. Badge buddies are an ideal solution to make credentials and identification clear and easy to read, even from a distance. A badge reel with a nurse’s name and position can ensure that patients and staff can readily identify them. A customized lanyard can highlight which department, team, or organization the nurse belongs to. Additionally, lanyards provide a convenient way to keep essential items close at hand. IDs, keys, and pagers can all be securely attached to a lanyard, making it easy for nurses to stay organized and focused on their patients. In short, our products offer simple but effective solutions for keeping nurses safe and efficient.
