Write Blood Sugar Reading on Wristband

In holding, when we check a diabetic's blood sugar, we not only give them a diabetic wristband, we write the actual blood sugar reading on the band and time it was checked. This allows a simple check for the PACU nurse and makes it easier on the OR circulator to give report.
