Nurse Badge Reels

Nurse ID Badge Reels are a very popular accessory in hospitals, doctor’s offices, pediatrics and children’s hospitals.

When working in a hospital or medical facility, your ID badge needs to be visible and available instantly.  ID badge reels such as those offered by SpecialistID, (also referred to as a retractable ID badge reels) extend your reach when you pull the ID away from your clothing, where it is attached with a clip. A wheel feeds the cord up into the badge reel in a retractable motion, so you pull the badge out, and it snaps back into place on your shirt. Your appearance stays neat and tidy, without the potential dangers of a corded lanyard getting caught in equipment’s moving parts, or dangling over a patient. A retractable ID badge reel is convenient for showing/swiping your ID  at your building’s parking facility, security checkpoints/metal detectors. Your ID is right on your chest, ready to be pulled away from your body for access control, presentation or inspection.

Nurse ID badge reels need to be friendly and stylish too. They’re a fashion accessory all on their own, with attractive heart-shaped styling and easy-to-coordinate colors (pink, white, red and clear) with different colored cords available and all with metal clasps that spin. There are different badge holders themselves that can be easily attached to the badge reel, including clear vinyl in vertical or horizontal positioning, in different sizes that accommodate any sized ID badge imaginable. The choices of badge holders are virtually limitless, with different colors, finishes, backgrounds, and even customization options for the holders including your name, the name of your institution or company and various finishes and tints. The cords come in braided and nylon with numerous color choices, or beaded chain.

Nurse Badge Reels are a great way for nurses and health care professionals to show their ID in a unique way, while showing social awareness (especially the Pink Badge Reel with the Domed Awareness Label). They are a heart-shaped, attractive addition to health care givers’ uniforms; also teachers, Red Hat Club members, students, book club members, or any gathering of nurses who want to literally wear their hearts for everyone to see. They’re an attractive addition to your professional attire, and the clip won’t harm your clothing, like a pinned badge might. The safety factor of having a badge firmly attached to your clothing is important too, with no dangling cords or badges getting caught up on beds, or other metal parts, or interfering with your charting.

They come in pink heart-shaped (with the awareness label), a clear vinyl strap and swivel spring clip; translucent red heart-shaped badge reel with a clear vinyl strap and swivel spring clip; a white badge reel with clear vinyl strap and swivel spring clip; a vertical oversized vinyl translucent red badge reel with a clear vinyl strap and swivel spring clip and a pink badge reel with clear vinyl strap and swivel spring clip. There are endless choices, and many of our most popular nurse ID badge holders have no order minimum. Keep your workforce uniform, or let your team express their own style.

We also carry the RN badge buddy.  This ID Accessory helps quickly identify key personnel.  This card is larger than your standard nurse ID, hanging right behind it.  The large blue box and text hang below your current ID so your role is clearly visible directly below your picture ID.

    If you have a plain white badge reel and want to dress it up, why not have a fabric covered button added to it. Dresses up those scrubs and can bring a smile to your patient’s face. My shop, JeJeweled, features holiday themed buttons, seasonal designs and much more.
