Charity Bracelets Pose Risk
Many people wear the Lance Armstrong "LIVESTRONG" bright yellow bracelet. Indeed, over 20 million of the bracelets have been sold since last May. Well, they might want to consider not wearing that bracelet as well as several others supportive of a variety of charities to the hospital. According to the AMA News, the yellow color of the Lance Armstrong bracelet matches the yellow wrist bands that certain hospitals place on patients' wrists to indicate at do-not-resuscitate order or for other serious designations. Hospitals fear that even though the bracelets are of different materials, the similar colors may cause confusion in an emergency situation. Some hospitals have asked patients to tape over the bracelet to minimize the risk.
