BWH ID Protocol
Whether you’re an employee, contractor, volunteer or student, you must wear your hospital-issued ID badge at all times when you’re on hospital property. Properly wearing an ID badge enables patients and visitors to easily identify BWH staff. Badges are also critical for maintaining hospital security. They must be worn either pinned or clipped to an outer garment, picture side out, right side up, above the waist. Lanyards are acceptable as well. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to learn more.
